The Ethics of Becoming-Imperceptible

Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the eco-philosophical aspects of the ethics of becoming, with reference to the project of nomadic subjectivity and sustainability. Nomadic philosophy mobilises one's affectivity and enacts the desire for in-depth transformations in the status of the kind of subjects we have become. Thus, nomadic ethics is not about a master theory, but rather about multiple micro-political modes of daily activism. As we shall see, it is essential to put the ‘active’ back into activism. This chapter suggests that the ethics of becoming is a way of not taking life for granted, while praising the radical immanence of subjects: it proposes becoming-imperceptible as transcendental empiricism.
