Das Problem – Althusser – Deleuze – Foucault

7 Jul , 2020  

Liest man Deleuze nicht ausschließlich im Kontext einer vernunftkritischen Position, die gemeinhin mit transzendentalem Empirismus umschrieben wird (vgl. Rölli 2003), auch nicht als Befürworter eines ontologischen Realismus (vgl. De Landa 2006), dann ließen sich mit Deleuze (und Guattari) auch sozio-ökonomische, synthetische Strukturen der gegenwärtigen kapitalistischen Ökonomie im Kontext von begrifflichen ...

Beyond “Control Societies”

5 Jul , 2020  

Radical indifference

Today, the behavioral and receptive patterns of the masses consist mostly of repetitive habits, although as users on the Internet they by no means remain passive, but are constantly involved in the pseudo-turbulent events via the social networks, in order to busily and employment-conform, sometimes even racist, produce ...

I’ll have to wander all alone – Jacques Derrida on Gilles Deleuze

4 Jul , 2020  

oo much to say, and I don’t have the heart for it today. There is too much to say about what has happened to us here, about what has also happened to me, with the death of Gilles Deleuze, with a death we no doubt feared (knowing him to be ...

A Baroque Heresy: Notes on Deleuze and Leibniz on the Concept

29 Jun , 2020  

“The other who is nobody…the a priori Other is defined in each system by its expressive value – in other words, its implicit and enveloping value […] The I and the Self, by contrast, are immediately characterised by functions of development or explication: not only do they experience qualities in ...

11 Jun , 2020  

I. Memories of a Spivakian

In Praise of the Prophylactic

19 Apr , 2020  

Prophylaxis is on everyone’s mind these days. Oh what a reversal from only a few months ago, when the decades long march of promiscuous ontologies seemed unstoppable. Are freedom and mobility unquestionable virtues? Should everything touch everything else? Until recently the answer was an unmitigated YES. The Spinozians spoke of flat ontologies. ...

Fatigue with the world, or the political power of exhaustion

Andrés Abril – Lobo suelto! (17/10/2019)

Things among things, the Bloom holds itself outside of everything in a forsaking identical to that of our universe. It is alone in all company and naked at all events. It is there that it reposes, in the extenuated ignorance of self, of its ...

Deleuze/Guattari and quantum finance

13 Sep , 2019  

Deleuze/Guattari invite us to apply at least three models of thought to the theoretical analysis of economics, by tracing the image of the current that, in their view, articulates each model. It is only the third, the molecular-performative model, that correctly stages the force of thought. (Laruelle contrasts the concept ...

Light Manifesto: Non-Philosophy and Meteophilosophy

29 Aug , 2019  

Abstract
Deleuze’s speculative suggestion on the dark precursor is not a
neutral “creative” cooperation with science that his “hybrid”
projects of geophilosophy, schizoanalysis, and so on, were. The
dark precursor is mentioned once in Difference and Repetition as a
notion of a “vaguely scientific” discipline, and there was no broad ...

Schizoanalysis, Marginalism, Fourierism (on two additional resources for understanding the economic views of Deleuze and Guattari)

27 Aug , 2019  

T

Taken from Stasis

This article analyzes how two theories, both emerging in the
nineteenth century—Fourierism and marginalism—influenced the
economic views of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. Despite the
fact that explicit recourse to those theories in Capitalism and
Schizophrenia is merely sporadic, the implicitly inherent
interrelation between these ideas ...

A Method to the Madness: The Revolutionary Marxist Method of Deleuze and Guattari

26 Aug , 2019  

taken from Stasis

Abstract


In this article, Andrew Culp looks to how Gilles Deleuze and Félix
Guattari flip Marxism on its head. He makes the case by drawing
on Marx’s own distinction between the dialectical mode of
presentation and research-based mode of inquiry that went into
writing Capital, which leads ...
