Axioms/Theorems for a New (Non)-Policy of the Black Block – Becoming Invisible (Deleuze/Guattari) and/or (Non)-Policy (Laruelle)?

12 Dez , 2019  

McKenzie Wark writes in his current contribution to the new text of the Invisible Committee “To Our Friends” that the state has produced the anarchist Black Block as the negative subject of the state itself. If we assume that today capital launches subjectivities as the auto industry launches new collections ...

On the question of the general purpose of the state (Poulantzas, Paschukanis, Vogl, etc.)

22 Nov , 2019  

In modern international law, territory, state power and population are generally regarded as important components of the sovereign nation-state. In the Marxist theoretical tradition inspired by structuralism, Nicos Poulantzas, following and in contrast to Louis Althusser’s analyses of the ideological state apparatuses (Althusser 1977), described the state somewhat more elaborately ...

Althusser and the “Problem” in Philosophy

6 Nov , 2019  

Deleuze’s philosophy of virtuality has simply put the non-creationist construction of problems, concepts and their relations before interpretation. Similarly, Althusser has formulated this in several passages of Das Kapital Lesen 1 when he writes that the production of a problem constellation and the concepts unfolding it is to be understood ...

Thinking Collective Self-Determination Through Municipalism

21 Sep , 2019  

The book Anti-Oedipus, by the French thinkers Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, has an interesting insight about three types of social formation and their registration surfaces: the primitive society where all is inscribed on land, the bodies are registered on it and everything leads to it; the despotic society ...

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 ...

Deleuze/Guattari and the Schizo-Attractor (Ultrablack of Music)

6 Sep , 2019  

For Gilles Deleuze, art is in a constant state of tension, inasmuch as it oscillates between the poles of chaos and order and must constantly come to schizophrenic updates if it is to break out of triangulation. In Deleuze’s work, this negentropic metastability takes the form of an inclusive disjunction ...

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)

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 ...

Theory of the Border

Border circuit: (1) Migrants cross the border. But the border is a junction, a vehicle of harnessed flows. The border acts as a sieve or filter since it allows capital and the global elite to move freely, but, like a yoke, catches the global poor. (2) A flow of migrants ...

So ist die Demokratie das Wesen aller Staatsverfassung (Karl Marx)

Auch in dieser Frage machte Marx keinerlei Zugeständnisse. Und es waren Deleuze/Guattari, die aufgrund vielfältiger historischer Erfahrungen, von denen Marx nichts wissen konnte, ins gleiche Horn bliesen und dessen Ansatz noch verschärften. Deleuze und Guattari verhöhnen geradezu die Demokratie, die den Vertrag, den Konsens und die Kommunikation und damit ständig ...

“This world of wild production and explosive desire” – The Unconscious and the Future in Felix Guattari

… In the context of science fiction studies Guattari’s interest in Cyberpunk
offers an alternative to Frederic Jameson’s dismissal of the genre as failing to offer anything more than an uncritical celebration of late-capitalism’s technological ubiquity. In fact Guattari offers hisown version of the theory of capitalist and cybernetic Accelerationism ...
