pdf hereeduardo-viveiros-de-castro-cannibal-metaphysics-for-a-poststructural-anthropology From anthropology to philosophy: Introduction to Eduardo Viveiros de Castro

Peter Skafish

Can anthropology be philosophy, and if so, how? For philosophers, the matter has been and often remains quite simple: anthropology’s concern with socio-cultural and historical differences might yield analyses that philosophy can put to use (provided ...

(Anti)Markets

9 Apr , 2018  

There are many advantages to political decentralization as a structural limitation on government power. Imagine a country the size of the United States, but consisting of only five states. Now imagine the same region containing 500 states. All other things being equal, the second situation is likely to be much ...

Brian Massumis “On the Revaluation of Value” (4)

19 Mrz , 2018  

Um den Wert wiederzugewinnen muss man sich jenseits des Regimes der Urteile bewegen und das heißt als erstes ihn von der Quantifizierung entkoppeln, womit er als ethisch, qualitativ und innerweltlich ausgewiesen werden kann. Eine neue Ethik ist relational und ökologisch im weitesten Sinne.

Die Lohnarbeit ist nur ein Beispiel für ...

Cunning War Machines

9 Mrz , 2018  

A speculative proposition: Deleuze and Guattari’s admonitions of caution in relation to absolute deterritorialization and destratification, as detailed in A Thousand Plateaus, is isomorphic to their historical analysis of the war machine’s capture and subordination of the State and the global geopolitical fallout from this movement.

ON GIVING UP ON THIS WORLD

28 Feb , 2018  

Thomas Dekeyser: I read your book Dark Deleuze as a two-fold intervention: into Deleuzian scholarship and into radical political thought. I would like to first hone in on the former. You suggest the majority of Deleuzian scholarship has been overwhelmed by a ”canon of joy” that “celebrates Deleuze as ...

A Molecular Revolution

27 Feb , 2018  

The third industrial revolution

The breaks between professional life, leisure and education, between private life and public life, the valorisation of serious mindedness, even being self-sacrificing, when it is a question of labour, seem to constitute the very foundations of every society. Despite the evolution of the techniques and modes ...

24 Jan , 2018  

Neyrat führt den Begriff der Koalition ein, der niemals auf identische Interessen oder Intentionen reduziert werden kann, vielmehr für ihn ein Ensemble von Seienden ist, ein Ensemble der Unsicherheit, das aber die Möglichkeit des Miteinander-Seins nicht ausschließt. Die Subjekte, die sich in Koalition befinden, nennt Neyrat „Trans-jekte“. Gerade als Agens ...

Synthetic Fabrication: The Myth of the Politics-to-Come (Part 0: Introduction)

Missing

The Millennium is ten years out, but for Baudrillard it might as well have already happened. The eclipsing of the communists’ historical dream by globalized flows of floating capital and information ushered in a cold, glacial stasis: the enveloping of any sense of forward momentum by the simulation of ...

What Is the Analog?

6 Jan , 2018  

This is an excerpt from a forthcoming essay on “The Golden Age of Analog.”

What does the analog mean today? A hard question indeed. For the digital, many will simply make reference to things like Twitter, Playstation, or computers in general. Here one might be correct, but only coincidentally,

Schizo-revolutionary Art; Deleuze, Guattari and Communization

26 Dez , 2017  

‘Insurrection is an art.’ (Jacques Camatte, 2011 38)

‘It is as a rupture with the reproduction of what we are that will necessarily form the horizon of our struggles.’ (Endnotes, 2011 31)
