Andrew Culp: Dark Deleuze – A Short Summary

28 Mai , 2016  

The way I think through another’s work is to write, to question, to take notes, read parallel works that pop out of my memory, cross-reference notions, ideas, propositions, diagrams, etc., and generally push a thought to its extreme limits. As I’ve been reading Andrew Culp’s work Dark Deleuze, which I ...

We Head for The Horizon and Return With Bloodshot Eyes (Brief Comments on the Plane of Immanence)

16 Mai , 2016

Namely, it is evident to the reader that ‘reaching the plane of immanence’ is portrayed as a virtue of the philosopher insofar as philosophy, understood as the creation of concepts, necessarily relies ...

Non-constitutive Rhetoric: Or the Banality of Control

19 Nov , 2015  

My purpose today is to update the rhetorical studies theory of subjectivity. I argue that ‘affect theory’ should replace the older psychoanalytic model of interpellation. To concretize my argument, I analyze banal rhetoric; namely, the cybernetic subjectivity produced by “stock listings, currencies, corporate accounting, national budgets, computer languages, mathematics, scientific ...

Book Review of The Posthuman by Rosi Braidotti

Contemporary philosopher and feminist theoretician, Rosi Braidotti’s The Posthuman is a rather academically heavy book in terms of esoteric cryptic jargon (for some) that skims from Spinoza, Deleuze, Foucault, Latour, Haraway and others. Regardless, it is a rather enthralling Cultural Studies related look into the sometimes frightening, sometimes hysterical, glittering ...
