By Bernd Herzogenrath

This quantity offers an unique and in-depth examine dedicated to the dialogue and relevance of the concept of 'the surroundings' and 'ecology' in the frame-work and 'ontology' of the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and Fel???­x Guattari. Their non-dualist and materialist re-thinking of those concerns is analyzed from numerous positions inside of Cultural stories and Sciences. 'Thinking environment[s]' with Deleuze|Guattari is so far faraway from what can be termed '(intellectual) tree-hugging' ?? it's primarily a choice to imagine complexity, and to advanced pondering, how to imagine the surroundings as a negotiation of dynamic preparations of human and nonhuman stressors, either one of that are expert and 'intelligent.' It refers to a realistic and site-specific tracing of infinitely advanced preparations, and as such can't count both on a thought of cultural constructivism, nor on a natural|biological determinism. Deleuze|Guattari offer an invaluable toolbox for one of these venture. 'Nature,' 'landscape,' 'environment' ?? in postmodern instances, all of those phrases and their connotations can not be limited to what one may well name 'the natural.' At a time whilst progressively more artists (not to say scientists!) function at the threshold among biology and expertise, the separation among the usual and the technological|cultural turns out, as Deleuze|Guattari continue, now not tenable. This e-book therefore goals at a thorough re-thinking of those recommendations from a Deleuzian|Guattarian (i.e. non-dualist and materialist) standpoint.
