Badiou's whole undertaking goals to re-educate philosophy via one technological know-how: arithmetic. Laruelle rigorously examines Badiou's Being and Event and indicates how Badiou has created a brand new aristocracy that crowns his personal philosophy because the grasp of a whole theoretical universe. In flip, Laruelle explains the distinction together with his personal non-philosophy as a real democracy of notion that breaks philosophy's continuous enthrall with arithmetic and as an alternative opens up a myriad of 'non-standard' locations the place pondering are available and practised.

In the former, mobile charges come from the diffuse double layer at the solid–liquid interface, while in the latter, counter-ions are the mobile species. For example, in zeolites or cation-exchange resins, the cations are mobile, whereas the anionic body is not. Such membranes in contact with electrolytic solutions are preferentially permeable to cations. The ion-exchange membranes may be either homogeneous or heterogeneous. The former are coherent ion-exchanger gels, while the latter consist of colloidal ion-exchanger particles embedded in a binder, such as polystyrene or polyethylene.
