In this book, Meillassoux argues that post-Kantian philosophy . The Number and the Siren: A Decipherment of Mallarme's Coup De Des (Urbanomic, 2012). Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, 2011.

In this book, Meillassoux argues that post-Kantian philosophy is dominated by what he calls "correlationism," the often unstated theory that humans cannot exist without the world nor the world without humans. In Meillassoux's view, this is a dishonest maneuver that allows philosophy to sidestep the problem of how to describe the world as it really is prior to all human.

A philosophical interrogation of the concepts of chance, contingency, and eternity through a concentrated study of Mallarmé's poem “Un Coup de Dés.”

A meticulous literary study, a detective story à la Edgar Allan Poe, a treasure-hunt worthy of an adventure novel―such is the register in which can be deciphered the hidden secrets of a poem like no other. Quentin Meillassoux, author of After Finitude, continues his philosophical interrogation of the concepts of chance, contingency, infinity, and eternity through a concentrated study of Mallarmé's poem “Un Coup de Dés,” patiently deciphering its enigmatic meaning on the basis of a dazzlingly simple and lucid insight with regard to Mallarmé's “unique Number.”

The decisive point of the investigation proposed by Meillassoux comes with a discovery, unsettling and yet as simple as a child's game. The Number that “can be no other” can only be revealed to us via a secret code, hidden in the “Coup de dés” like a key that finally unlocks every one of its poetic devices. Thus is also unveiled the meaning of that siren, emerging for a lightning-flash amongst the debris of the shipwreck: as the living heart of a drama that is still unfolding.

With this bold new interpretation of Mallarmé's work, Meillassoux offers brilliant insights into modernity, poetics, secularism, and religion, and opens a new chapter in his philosophy of radical contingency.

The volume contains the entire text of the “Coup de dés” and three other poems, with new English translations.


Mr.Bean
Fascinating to the point of being mystical. Meillassoux has intruded a reading of Mallarme's great work that may actually be a fictional construct, but which illuminates Mallarme's project in ways that other literary "analyses" miss completely. Speculative materialism is an accurate description of Meillassoux's point of view here.
Clonanau
A wild imagination but completely off the mark as far as Mallarme's poem is concerned. The number he comes up with is so farfetched as to be ludicrous. I' just going to throw the book in the trash.
Reighbyra
I read this book. There is a bit of hype about this book. It is Mallarme, but this fellow is no Jacques Derrida. Derrida put out an extraordinary reading of Mallarme in the early 70"s. This book claims to decipher Mallarme, and it is true that it offers an excellent explanation of one narrow aspect of "un coup de des." But so what, it is mechanical, and it is like one note of cleverness compared to genius of Derrida.
Capella
Brilliant book, enticed me at once. Much easier to read that his other work "After Finitude", which is also amazing.
