The problem with Women

The problem with women are the same as the problem with men. We tend to see these as helpful categories. And perhaps sometimes they are? What we typically do when we speak about women or men is a short-cut that embodies a lot of different things. The problem is that in meeting other people the projection of what a ’woman really is’ (or what a ’man really is’) often overcodes and … Fortsätt läsa The problem with Women

A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (Part 2)

Read: A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (part 1) here.   Porn as community Today, porn on the internet is a well that never dries out. Although much of ”commercial”, mainstream pornography is produced in California, porn can also be seen as a growing do-it-yourself movement. Some search-engine-youtube-like sites, such as Pornhub, also has a division of what they are doing called Pornhub Community. The Community in this case consists … Fortsätt läsa A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (Part 2)

The Cure #2: Acceptance Commitment Theology

In my post The Sickness I bashed psychoanalys and different strands of psychology for being in service of capitalism; of an ideological production of a self-sufficient individual. However, when I’m now turning to formulating a remedy, there are different aspects of this where I think that Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) is productive. But I would like to advance this to Acceptance Commitment Theology. It’s all the … Fortsätt läsa The Cure #2: Acceptance Commitment Theology

A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (Part 1)

Desiring machines At the outset of Anti-Oedipus Deleuze and Guattari lays out what they understand as desiring machines. The mouth coupled with the breast, the bee coupled with the flower. Desire, in Deleuze’s understanding of the word, is productive, it drives us forward, the amalgamation of the in some sense heretofore singular, or at least separable, into a new totality is how desire works. Desire … Fortsätt läsa A Thousand Tiny Sextapes (Part 1)

The Cure #1: Control+Alt+Deleuze

In my last post I posited that capitalist individualism may be seen as a sickness. I wouldn’t do my job as a deleuzian philosopher if I didn’t take the mission command to introduce new problems and dream up new concepts, new worlds even. Here is one idea that has been floating around in my head for some time. How to merge a libertarianism (verging on anarchism) … Fortsätt läsa The Cure #1: Control+Alt+Deleuze

The Sickness

We live in a world where we are told by forces (I know, it sounds ominous but bear with me) tell us that the individual should be self-sufficient. In their seminal works on Capitalism and Schizophrenia, Deleuze and Guattari talks about how psychoanalysis ’works’, but is no neutral practice. I would argue that the same holds true for not only psychoanalysis but principally every strand of psychology … Fortsätt läsa The Sickness

”Deleuzian” Theology

There’s nothing rotten in the state of theology Gilles Deleuze. In a list compiling the authors of the most cited authors of books in the humanities, Deleuze came in 12th place. As such he is unquestionably one of the super stars of 20th century philosophy. Within theology there is currently an increasing number of theologians looking to the works of Deleuze (including those written together … Fortsätt läsa ”Deleuzian” Theology

Creating the Political Future

”Det geniala med lagen är att det bygger på en tydlig representation av det gudomliga. Den hyllar visserligen Gud – att hylla någon som ända aldrig lägger sig i något kostar ingenting, och det är därför också det äldsta metafysiska tricket i boken – men det viktiga är inte vem lagen hyllar, utan att den bygger på något fysiskt frånvarande så att den med hyllningen som kamouflage … Fortsätt läsa Creating the Political Future

Thinking and Relating without Representation

It’s not entirely easy to describe what non-representational thinking is, but accept the challenge and see if you follow (and comment if you don’t quite understand my way of explaining). I’ve chosen to do it here by (mainly) talking about it as a matter of desires, fantasies, sex and relationships. What separates Gilles Deleuze (who is sometimes referred to as a post-structuralist) from structuralists is … Fortsätt läsa Thinking and Relating without Representation
