Immanence and Micropolitics : Sartre, Merleau-ponty, Foucault, Deleuze (Hardcover) (Christian Gilliam)
About this item
Christian Gilliam argues that a philosophy of "pure" immanence is integral to the development of an alternative understanding of "the political"; one that re-orients our understanding of the self toward the concept of an unconscious or "micropolitical" life of desire. He argues that here, in this "life", is where the power relations integral to the continuation of post-industrial capitalism are most present and most at stake. Through proving its philosophical context, lineage and political import, Gilliam ultimately justifies the conceptual necessity of immanence in understanding politics and resistance, thereby challenging the claim that ontologies of "pure" immanence are either apolitical or politically incoherent.
