Having narrowly escaped the clutches of a band of marauders, Montaigne attributes his good luck to his face: "If my face did not answer for me, if people did not read in my eyes and my voice the innocence of my intentions, I would not have lasted so long without quarrel and without harm." With his legible eyes and voice, Montaigne's "Of Physiognomy" projects a face that quells quarrels and establishes "innocence."

A New Political Ecology: Guattari, Stengers, Latour (ACLA 2012, Brown University, Due Nov 15)

Tuesday, November 8, 2011 - 8:20am
ACLA 2012 "Collapse/Catastrophe/Change"

In Three Ecologies (1989), Felix Guattari draws attention to the deterioration of modes of life along with an increasing ecological disequilibrium that threatens the planet. The standardization of behavior and consumerism combined with the mass media effects corresponds to an impoverishment of what Foucault called "savoir-faire." Resonating with this concept, Guattari extends the question to the effects of capitalism's capture that destroys both mental and environmental ecologies. In her suggestive dialog with Guattari, Isabelle Stengers correlates this ontological impoverishment with the emergence of bêtise: the form of capitalist subjectivity.
