Lovecraft: la disyunción en el Ser

Another magnificent book by Argentinian philosopher Fabián Ludueña. Lovecraft is once again claimed by philosophy – what is rapidly becoming a trend – as the writer who poses the most cogent questions for contemporary thought. Ludueña’s erudition and depth are impressive. He suggests that Lovecraft’s contribution rests on his construction of myth, but a myth devoid of any commitment to the human species, a sort of non-anthropic concept of the myth. The multiverse engendered by Lovecraft is ruled by a disjunctive principle located in the very core of Being. The writer of Providence develops a notion of subjectivity that prescinds embodiment in any determined physical substance and creates a thinking of radical outsideness. A brilliant work of philosophy and literary criticism.
