"Materialism is a name for the non-transcendental status of form, in general. Matter is what forms itself in producing the conditions of possibility of this formation. Any transcendental instance necessarily finds itself in a position of exteriority in relation to that which it organises. By its nature the condition of possibility is other than what it makes possible. Materialism, in general, affirms the opposite, the absence of any outside of the process of formation. Matter is self in formation, and selves in formation are, then, systematically non-transcendental."
