Review of: L. Althusser, Philosophy of the Encounter

By W.P. Cockshott


The article reviews Althusser’s Philosophy of the Encounter, examining in turn the problem\ud of the Epistemological Break and the idea of matérialisme aléatoire. It looks at Althusser’s\ud critique of the concept of commodity fetishism and suggests a possible response. It goes on\ud to situate the matérialisme aléatoire in the context of the history of atomism with particular\ud reference to the work of Boltzmann. It provides a possible technique of both rejecting teleology\ud whilst retaining the arrow of time
