Dionysian materialism”: the formula expresses the need for a rapprochement between the post-Marxist and post-Nietzschean currents, a highly implausible encounter in the academic and public context of the time. It’s true that I haven’t explicitly gone back to this formula in the fifteen years since the publication of Thinker on Stage. And yet it’s become virtually second nature to me, and if I didn’t use the expression often, that’s because I’d formed the habit of considering all my problems and all my interventions in the affective light of this concept – without having any further need to develop its purely theoretical dimensions.

But this mere observation that modern thinking is marked by its historicity and that the proper names of the major authors serve us as markers in the chaotic flow of discourses doesn’t go far enough. We have to go further and delve into the content and method of a radically contemporary thinking. Hence the following questions: What is thought (la pensée) if one thinks “after Nietzsche”? And how does one think if one thinks within the sphere of influence and on the horizon of Nietzschean thought? The answer to the first of these questions must indicate why that thought is at the center of modern civilization.
