Bergsonian Science-Fiction: Kodwo Eshun, Gilles Deleuze, & Thinking the Reality of Time

17 Jan , 2017

Acceleration, Revolution and Money in Deleuze and Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus

The essay moves from the conceptual place where the „philosophical plane faces the chaos“ (Deleuze-Guattari/1991).  From a deep distance trapped in the past and the discretion of the dawn, a different thought and a different culture (re)emerge.
