Deleuze and Machines: A Politics of Technology?

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter focuses on Gilles Deleuze's thoughts about politics of technology and control societies, suggesting that there is no universal form of control, nor a universal form of resistance, and that while the new abstract machines of control may be ruled by corporate capital, there is no necessary reason for that to be so. It highlights the relevance of Deleuze and Félix Guattari's concept of the body without organs for control societies.

Keywords: Gilles Deleuze; politics of technology; control societies; abstract machines; corporate capital; Félix Guattari; body without organs
