about this item
This book provides an exploration and evaluation of Guattari’s experimental and creative production of ideas through the perspective of Geography.
In keeping with his own ability to negotiate between and bring together different disciplines, this book pays homage to Guattari’s own style of thinking, focusing on the notion of transversal geographies. The book is divided in three parts: cartographies, ecosophy and micropolitics, which each chapter showcasing the pragmatic and singular grounds by which Guattari’s signature concept of the transversal can be found to be consistent, persuasive and useful. The transversal geographies that emanate in this book show a geography that subverts the norms of history, politics, art and ethics, where concepts transverse their origins to open up ways of questioning different contexts anew.
This book demonstrates the pertinance of Guattari in the present day, showcasing the that Guattari offers social science and its cognate disciplines a stimulating conceptual vocabulary that presents innovative and in situ methodological approaches.
