How Many Breakdowns For Every Breakthrough?

16 Dez , 2018  

Ultimately, one escapes from the structuralist impasse by recognizing that an effect of meaning only has repercussions at the level of the signified in so far as potentialities of subjective action are liberated, once there is a breach in the signifier…The machinic breakthrough, waiting, masked by the structure, is the ...

Deleuze/Guattari und der Schizo-Attraktor (Ultrablack of Music 1)

30 Nov , 2018  

Für Gilles Deleuze befindet sich die Kunst in einer ständigen Spannung, insofern sie zwischen den Polen Chaos und Ordnung oszilliert und ständig zu schizophrenen Aktualisierungen kommen muss, wenn sie aus der Triangulation ausbrechen will. Diese negentropische Metastabilität nimmt bei Deleuze die Form der inklusiven Disjunktion (weder … noch/ dieses oder ...

Deleuze/Guattari und die Quanten-Finance

26 Nov , 2018  

Deleuze/Guattari fordern uns dazu auf, mindestens drei Denk-Modelle auf die theoretische Analyse der Ökonomie anzuwenden, indem sie selbst das Bild der Strömung, das ihrerAnsicht zufolge jedes Modell artikuliert, nachzeichnen. Erst das dritte, das molekular-performative Modell setzt die Kraft-des-Denkens richtig in Szene. (Laruelle setzt den Begriff Kraft-des-Denkens in Kontrast zum Gedanken. ...

The Political Centrality of the Migrant

Political theory in the twenty-first century is at an interesting crossroads where migration has reached such a critical threshold that what seemed to be an exception has now become the rule. The question now is how to understand the rules of this game in a much more adequate way.

In historical phenomena such as the revolution of 1789, the Commune, the revolution of 1917, there is always one part of the event that is irreducible to any social determinism, or to causal chains. Historians are not very fond of this point: they restore causality after the fact. Yet the ...

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.
