The Signature of the World focuses on one of the most influential works of contemporary philosophy: It sets What is Philosophy? Much recent philosophy has revelled in declaring the end of metaphysics, of ontology, and sometimes of philosophy itself.
In sharp contrast, The Signature of the World is a forceful reminder of the power of ontology and the need for a materialist reinvention of metaphysics.
An Introduction to the Matter’, as well as a preface by Alberto Toscano.

The Signature of the World is an odd book. Not quite a guide, but more of a chaser to the main event, if could be put that teh. On the other hand, the clear familiarity that Alliez has for his subjects tends, as far the reading experience goes, to somewhat work against his own book.
Although pregnant with instances of suggestion, both the pace and density with which Signature moves across its subject matter has the effect of obscuring the many legitimately interesting points otherwise raised. If this were a longer work, one could perhaps forgive the many instances worlf this kind of thing.
Yet at just over a hundred pages, these flash-in-a-pan insights of which there are many! Granted, this is as much an effect of the demands placed upon the reader by Alliez himself, and someone with a bit more patience, a bit more sympathy, might be more willing than I to work through and pursue the many suggestions and implications developed through the book.
After all, Signature does have the distinction of in fact engaging with many points of reference that are only now really coming to the attention of the English speaking world – the work of Gilbert Simondon, Fransisco Verela, Raymond Ruyer and the aforementioned Whitehead all stand out – but again, the scattered nature of the discussions here make this a book far easier to cite from there are choice quotes everywhere!
So like I said – an odd book: Read if you have the time and the interest. Jan 12, booklover rated it it was amazing. I bought this book because I was curious about what Alliez had to say about “Deleuze’s Virtual Philosophy” and was not disappointed!
