In this daring essay inspired by Nietzsche, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari redefine the relation between the state and its war machine. 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 schizophrenic lines of 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.

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.
As I see it, these 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, this 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.
Revolutionary indeed. View 2 comments. May 08, D. Mattison rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: people who like their mind fucked. Look out on your current skyline and ask yourself about the geometrical configuration of space. Think about the war in Iraq and the genocide in Darfur and ask yourself why humans continue to plow one another over creating an unceasing river of blood.
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 Look out on your current skyline and ask yourself about the geometrical configuration of space.
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 very rhythm of time. Yes, but of course! One, deterritorialization: to "make the outside a territory in space"; to shatter an enemy's territory from within.
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 show. It is the place that will tell you what is to be done. If 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 of 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.

Dec 06, Matt rated it it was amazing. I got hosed on this one. It's actually just a chapter from A Thousand Plateaus. This one is a nice little review, but should be taken in the broader context of Capitalism and Schizophrenia. Read that instead.
Axiom I. The war machine is exterior to the State apparatus. Proposition I. This exteriority is first attested to in mythology, epic, drama, and games.
Nomadology: The War Machine
Psychical nomadism is a philosophical term that refers to the practice of taking as one needs from any moral, religious, political, ethical, or whatever system, and leaving behind the parts of that system found to be unappealing. Psychic nomadism facilitates the construction of ad hoc reference frames in which to situate the temporary actions required by TAZ. Bey describes psychic nomadism's tactical qualities along with Deleuze and Guattari's sensibilities about the war machine:. Bey also discusses these nomads in terms of the Internet and cyberspace. Lay down a map of the land; over that, set a map of political change; over that, a map of the Net, especially the counter-Net with its emphasis on clandestine information-flow and logisitics - and finally, over all, the map of the creative imagination, aesthetics, values. The resultant grid comes to life, animated by unexpected eddies and surges of energy, coagulations of light, secret tunnels, and surprises. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Gilles Deleuze & Félix Guattari
Immanuel Kant — German philosopher. The immediate origin of the concept would seem to be Deleuze and Guattari's discussion of the despot in L'Anti-Oedipe , translated as Anti-Oedipus The despot is an intermediate figure between the primitive society without a state on the one hand and the so-called civilized imperial state on the other. What is crucial about the concept of the despot, however, is the fact that in Deleuze and Guattari's description it refers to a latent state of being, meaning it is virtual and presupposed, but never actual. Like the despot, then, the figure of the nomad stands for the power of the virtual, or what they call the war machine. The nomad is a tendency towards deterritorialization, Deleuze and Guattari argue, that can be found to some degree in all phenomena.
