Vibrant Matter: A Political Ecology of Things

Dublin Core

Description

Quickly becoming a classic, Bennett's book asks (among other things) how the term "materialism" came to be synonymous with Marx's notion of materiality, "as economic structures and exchanges that provoke many other events." She asks, "Why did Foucault’s concern with ‘bodies and pleasures’ or Deleuze’s and Guattari’s interest in ‘machinic assemblages’ not count as materialist?"
