In the same vein, nomadic science keeps infiltrating royal science, undermining its axioms and principles. Nomadology is a speedy, pocket-sized treatise that refuses to be pinned down. Theorizing a dynamic relationship between sedentary power and hte lines nomqdology flight,” this volume is meant to be read in transit, smuggled into urban nightclubs, offices, and subways. Deleuze and Guattari propose a creative and resistant ethics of becoming-imperceptible, strategizing a continuous invention of weapons on the run.
An anarchic bricolage of ideas uprooted from anthropology, aesthetics, history, and military strategy, Nomadology carries out Deleuze’s desire to “leave philosophy, but to leave it as a philosopher.

Lists with This Book. Apr 11, Spoust1 rated it liked it. Now, I have a love-hate relationship with Deleuze. I think he is one of the more original French philosophers, and I appreciate his refusal to subordinate philosophy to any sort of discourse theory.
But still I am torn. On one hand, in an age after philosophers sound like philosophers – the analytic philosophers sound like Then again, with some of his later books Deleuze – with Guattari – turns away from this kind of writing and thinking – philosophical writing and thinking – toward what I will call metaphor-ology.
Nomadology: The War Machine
Eeleuze I see it, kachine later books read more like extremely elaborate metaphors. These metaphors in many ways illuminate other philosophical texts, as well as current events, but they remain metaphors. It is this later Deleuze – and one can see how he developed from the early Deleuze – that frustrates me.
At times I find these books exciting, and I can see their use; but I also think these books are silly. It should be read by those who find the idea of the nomad and the war machine exciting and sexy. As I see it, delleuze criteria for determining who should read the book in a way damns the book.
It has been suggested by Badiou and Zizek that Deleuze is the revolutionary philosopher for the white, middle-class, 20 something crowd.

We are bound by metal and operate through a metallurgic medium. Deleuze and Guattari mind fuck you into a catatonic swiss cheese state of understanding space, time, and politics. This is a great companion to Guns, Germs, and Steel.

Don’t worry if it takes you longer to digest these one hundred odd pages than it does Diamond’s – you are perfectly normal and most likely don’t speak French.

The deterritorialization velocity of affect is an invented sense of exteriority that will change the nomadologt rhythm of time. Yes, but of course! Time changes rhythm according the space and place, then. The idea that we are productive because we are terribly busy all the time is a way of consuming space, doing away with the gaps, of not allowing any obvious void to tue. It is the place that will tell you what is to be done. Jachine in the bedroom, sleep or fuck. If in the study, read and work; if at the park, recreate.
Is there any place not already filled with activity, with purpose, with intelligence or end? But then that would mean no room for idleness, for thinking, for refusals or freedom, even. Th Situationists had it almost right; they would navigate the streets nomarology Paris according to a map of Amsterdam, or Brussels, etc. But according to this exercise, place is made by plot or trajectory, not inhabited. What if we were able to invent new space-logics, beginning by violating some of the old ones.
Don’t tell me that time and thoughts would not be different, were we not all working in offices, but on the floor of the public restroom, or in the isle of some Safeway.

After you’ve finished reading Anti-Oedipus. Then people will think your smart because you’ve read Deleuze. Apr 13, Jamie rated it it was amazing. Oct 17, Roger Green rated it really liked it.
This is a readable little excerpt from A Thousand plateaus. A good “think piece” but I stress that it’s deeuze excerpt and hard to nomadologu the gist of terms like “nomadology” without some background in other works.
