THEORY OF THE EARTH

26 Nov , 2020  

Theory of the Earth reconsiders the immanent history of the earth from the perspective of the increasingly unstable mobility that de fines the Anthro-pocene. It thus provides a uniquely movement-oriented or “kinetic” theory of the earth. This methodology has two significant consequences. First, by focusing on the movement of the ...

Returning to Lucretius

18 Nov , 2020  

Why Return to Lucretius?

I think a new Lucretius is coming into view today. Every period in Western history since Lucretius has returned to him like bees returning to their flower fields in search of nourishment. Each time, though, our return is different—like the expanding arc of a spiral. We ...

Massumi’s Matheme

22 Okt , 2020  

In the past I’ve written on how to spot digital philosophers. But let’s name names. Who exactly do we mean? Digital philosophers are many: Democritus, Leibniz, Konrad Zuse, Wittgenstein (in the Tractatus but later he inverts), Edward Fredkin, Stephen Wolfram, and many others.

Analog philosophers are also observable in the wild. Deleuze ...

Thomas Nails “Marx in Motion” (1)

16 Okt , 2020  

Das Marx Buch von Thomas Nail bezieht sich stark auf den kinetischen Materialismus, den Nail an anderer Stelle entwickelt hat. So ist es kein Zufall, dass Nail nach einer Reihe von Anmerkungen zum westlichen Marxismus mit einer breiten Diskussion der Dissertation des frühen Marx beginnt.

The Time of Climate and the Climate of Time

Time travel narratives are in some regard a paradigm for speculative fiction itself. They focalize the broader tradition of setting a story at a distant historical moment, future or past, passing that experience of change through the character of the time ...

Thomas Nails Magnum Opus “Being and Motion” – eine Sensation in materialistischer Philosophie (6)

7 Okt , 2020  

Das historische Regime der Bewegung (2)

Im Mittelalter haben wir es laut Nail mit dem kinetischen Regime der tensionalen Kraft zu tun, einerseits der theologischen Beschreibung des Seins als Kraft, andererseits der kinographischen Erfindung des Buchs. Dabei bleibt die Kraft immanent zur Bewegung, die erstere konstituiert, wird aber im Mitteöalter ...

The  first limitation is Deleuze ’ s  theory of motion . If the flux of matter, like every other  flux, is ontologically equal to every other flux, then we should expect to  find in Deleuze ’ s pluralist ontology of becoming apure becoming of motion without stasis, immobility, cut, or ...
