Deleuze and Politics

Just got Nathan Widder’s Political Theory after Deleuze today, and am looking forward to reading it. I’ve been thinking quite a bit recently about what the limits to Deleuze’s thought are for politics – particularly in regards to how Deleuze’s philosophy seems very much to remove the human (see Paul Harrison’s nice little article in Area in 2011).

I’ve just written a piece for Geography Compass (which is under review at the moment) which aims to give a broad overview of assemblage thinking and its links to politics – which is where these ideas have become important. I love Delueze for the sense of potential and excitement he can give to understanding connections within assemblages, but it’s clear that I’ve got some further reading/thinking to do.
