From the final chapter of forthcoming translation of Anti-Badiou:

'Philosophy is fundamentally a theatre that denies itself as such, strictly speaking to recognize itself as final duplicity, as a tragedy and a comedy of self-repetition. A deus ex machina: the philosopher seems to disappear into philosophy, but in reality projects himself specularly, like a curious god contemplating this game. Materialism begins to simplify the theatre: the philosopher is still necessary – no longer as a god, but in the wings, where he hides himself so as to pull the strings of matter and thought, of Being and consciousness.'

I'm very excited about this group, John. I've recently started digging into Laruelle. I will have to check out your recent collection on his works.
