A deep exploration of the numerous percentages inherent in linking Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy to modern technology, John Protevi’s Life, struggle, Earth demonstrates how Deleuze’s ontology of the digital, extensive, and genuine can improve our knowing of significant concerns in cognitive technological know-how, biology, and geography. Protevi illustrates how a Deleuzian strategy can remove darkness from quite a lot of issues and topics, together with historical and modern battle, human individuation techniques, the “granularity problem,” panpsychism, the E. coli bacterium, the assassination try on U.S. consultant Gabrielle Giffords, and the affective dimensions of the Occupy movement.
Frequently bold yet continually rooted within the empirical, Life, conflict, Earth exhibits how the social and the somatic usually are not against one another yet are interwoven on 3 time scales—the evolutionary, the developmental, and the behavioral—and on 3 political scales—the geopolitical, the bio-neuro-political, and the technopolitical.
Deeply attuned to the internalities of the idea of Deleuze, the publication bargains a distinct examining of his corpus and an invaluable process for utilising Deleuzian options to the typical sciences, the social sciences, political phenomena, and modern occasions.
