September 19, 2015 / Felix Guattari, Accelerationist
The criticism that consumption society deserves is that there are not enough things: we need more gadgets, and things and stuff, that we can box into other things, all this crap, a whole sexuality of gadgets. The Puritans still have too much control over consumer society!
So that we can put an end to archaic territoriality and the lingering smell of Christian alliances and vicious filiations.... We have to pass to signs. 'Schizo power'!
I don't know!
Because there is no choice! It's already starting anyway! It's irreversible. And anyway, who cares....
There must be some other reason.
The supreme foundation of ethics.
The reinforced artificiality of desire, correlative to the deterritorialization of the sign is, it seems to me, the path to less bullshit, and to unblocking political and neurotic impasses of all kinds. As well as being, surely, a new way to please the good Lord! The accomplishment of nothing!
- Félix Guattari, The Anti-Oedipus Papers, 79-80

September 11, 2015 / Classic Contingency
The latest addition to our Redactions series is a reissue of sold-out title The Medium of Contingency, a groundbreaking discussion on contingency in finance, contemporary art, and philosophy featuring Elie Ayache, Reza Negarestani, Matthew Poole, and Robin Mackay.
Not only does it include Ayache on derivatives, markets, and anastrophic plagiarism, and Poole on capitalism, curation, and power, but also Negarestani explaining why the artist is a tuning fork with reason on one prong, and a razor blade on the other.
