E‑mail:

The paper deals with Quentin Meillassoux’s recent book ‘The number and the Siren’. Meillassoux’s interpretation of Mallarme’s poetry is considered in the general context of Meillassoux’s philosophy; it is also treated as a part of the intellectual movement of ‘occupying the theological’, which also includes figures such as Alain Badiou and Slavoy Zizek. Such an analysis enables us to reveal the internal duality which characterizes this movement, and to outline the ways for the implementation of the demand of immanent expropriation of the theological’s core.

Keywords: Mallarme, Meillassoux, occupying the theological
