This chapter examines contemporary militarism in the context of Gilles Deleuze's philosophy. It explains that in Deleuze and Félix Guattari's terms, militarism is always coming up against its limits and at the same time constantly repelling those limits. The chapter highlights the profound mutation in militarism which changed the meaning of war, and discusses the notion that the idea that war should be considered a logical and necessary extension of politics.

Keywords: militarism; Gilles Deleuze's philosophy; Félix Guattari; war; politics
