In this expanded edition of his landmark 2011 work on Meillassoux, Graham Harman covers new materials not available to the Anglophone reader at the time of the first edition. Along with Meillassoux's startling book on Mallarmé's poem `Un coup de dés jamais n'abolira le hasard,’ Harman discusses several new English articles by Meillassoux, including his controversial April 2012 Berlin lecture and its critique of `subjectalism’. Freshly called to a professorship at the Sorbonne, Meillassoux's star has continued to rise. This expanded edition of the only book on Meillassoux remains the best introduction to one of Europe's most promising thinkers.

Despite all of my reservations, some of which I have mentioned above, this is still essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary continental philosophy.
