For what can be done to prevent the theme of a race from turning into a racism, a dominant and all-encompassing fascism, or into a sect and a folklore, microfascisms? It is the point of application of the resultant of all of these parallel forces that remains invariable when their common direction is changed or the body is rotated the center of gravity. The work of Anne Querrien enables us to identify two of these moments; one is the construction of Gothic cathedrals in the twelfth century, the other the construction of bridges in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

In short, whenever the irruption of war power is confused with the line of State domination, everything gets muddled; the war machine can then be understood only through the categories of the negative, since nothing is left that remains outside the State.

Notably, within his metaphysics he depeuze a Spinozian concept of a plane of immanence with everything a mode of one substance, and thus on the same level of existence. Smooth space is a field without conduits or channels. There is an old scenario: It is possible to pass from a magical function to a rational function.

Thought is like the Vampire; it has no image, either to constitute a model of or to copy.


Goethe and Hegel, State thinkers both, see Kleist as a monster, and Kleist has lost from the start. We are bound by metal and operate through a metallurgic medium. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.

I have to read this again along with the entire A Thousand Plateaus.

Nomadology: The War Machine

The conclusion is not that the State-form is absent in the Orient. Its on-the-spot emergence is like a stroke of genius, the birth of Athena.

Refresh and try again. Desire has nothing to do with a natural or spontaneous determination; there is no desire but assembling, assembled, engineered desire.

Eugene Sue, a man of high-society and a dandy, whom legitimists reproached for frequenting the Orleans family used to say: It is instructive to contrast two models of science, after the manner of Plato in the Timaeus. So how and why the State?

A Few Notes on Nomadology: The War Machine

So that instead of a representational model we enter into external relations among the various artifacts in relation to other relations i. Preview — Nomadology by Gilles Deleuze.

But the State is not defined by the existence of chiefs; it is defined by the perpetuation or conservation of organs of power. It can be said not only that there is no longer a need for skilled or qualified labor, but also that there is a need for unskilled or unqualified labor, for a dequalification of labor.

In thhe daring essay inspired by Nietzsche, Gilles Deleuze sar Felix Guattari redefine the relation between the state and its war machine.

As such, the war machine has three aspects, a spatiogeographic aspect, an arithmetic or algebraic aspect. Only royal science, in contrast, has at its disposal a metric power that can define a conceptual apparatus or an autonomy of science including the autonomy of experimental science. But what is proper to Go is war without battle lines, with neither confrontation nor retreat, without battles even: Therefore, and this is the third point, there is a significant difference between the spaces: Rather, he is like a pure and immeasurable multiplicity, the pack, an irruption of the ephemeral and the power of metamorphosis.


The State does not give power pouvoir to the intellectuals or conceptual innovators; on the contrary, it makes them a strictly dependent organ with an autonomy that is only imagined yet is sufficient to divest those whose job it becomes simply to reproduce or implement of all of their power puissance. It was all over the moment the State-form inspired an image of thought. Why is it, then, that the most uncanny modernity lies with him?

And though the atomist Democritus is one of the authors who speak of rhythm in the sense of form, it should be borne in mind that he does so under very precise conditions of fluctuation and that the forms made by atoms are primarily large, nonmetric aggregates, smooth spaces such as the air, the sea, or even the earth magnae res. It is not enough to affirm that the war machine is external to the apparatus. Return to Book Page. In this respect, the recent studies on rhythm, on the origin of that notion, do not seem entirely convincing.

The War Machine and Capitalism

The exteriority of the war machine is at- tested to, finally, by noology. But the primary question is that of form itself. Yet, nomaxology centers on the main aspect of how technology is plugged into specific assemblages, and that it is this assemblage that defines the conceptual relations to technology rather than technologies determination of the assemblage socious, body-without-organs, etc.

Such as this one on the principle of technology:.
