11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The contemporary consumer is bombarded with fear-inducing images and information.

The contributors address questions raised by the saturation of social space by capitalized fear
Parables for the virtual : movement, affect, sensation by Brian Massumi ( Book )
18 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although the body has been the focus of much contemporary cultural theory, the models that are typically applied neglect the most salient characteristics of embodied existence -- movement, affect, and sensation -- in favor of concepts derived from linguistic theory. In Parables for the Virtual Brian Massumi views the body and media such as television, film, and the Internet, as cultural formations that operate on multiple registers of sensation beyond the reach of the reading techniques founded on the standard rhetorical and semiotic models. Renewing and assessing William Jamesʹs radical empiricism and Henri Bergsonʹs philosophy of perception through the filter of the post-war French philosophy of Deleuze, Guattari, and Foucault, Massumi links a cultural logic of variation to questions of movement, affect, and sensation. -- Publisher description

A shock to thought expressions after Deleuze and Guattari by Brian Massumi ( )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The world does not exist outside of its expression' The works of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari have had an impact far beyond philosophy. Although they famously claim "the world does not exist outside of its expression", expression remains an overlooked aspect of their work. A Shock to Thought brings together a collection of excellent essays that explore the implications of Deleuze and Guattari's philosophy of expression in a number of contemporary contexts: beauty versus modernism, reflection to postmodernism, sensation and politics, the conditions of emergence, and the virtual in politics, poetry, music and digital culture. The volume also makes available an interview with Guattari which clearly restates the "aesthetic paradigm" that organizes both his and Deleuze's work. A Shock to Thought will be of interest to all those in philosophy, cultural studies, and art theory

Thought in the Act : Passages in the Ecology of Experience by Erin Manning ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
" "Every practice is a mode of thought, already in the act. To dance: a thinking in movement. To paint: a thinking through color. To perceive in the everyday: a thinking of the world's varied ways of affording itself." --from Thought in the Act Combining philosophy and aesthetics, Thought in the Act is a unique exploration of creative practice as a form of thinking. Challenging the common opposition between the conceptual and the aesthetic, Erin Manning and Brian Massumi "think through" a wide range of creative practices in the process of their making, revealing how thinking and artfulness are intimately, creatively, and inseparably intertwined. They rediscover this intertwining at the heart of everyday perception and investigate its potential for new forms of activism at the crossroads of politics and art.Emerging from active collaborations, the book analyzes the experiential work of the architects and conceptual artists Arakawa and Gins, the improvisational choreographic techniques of William Forsythe, the recent painting practice of Bracha Ettinger, as well as autistic writers' self-descriptions of their perceptual world and the experimental event making of the SenseLab collective. Drawing from the idiosyncratic vocabularies of each creative practice, and building on the vocabulary of process philosophy, the book reactivates rather than merely describes the artistic processes it examines. The result is a thinking-with and a writing-in-collaboration-with these processes and a demonstration of how philosophy co-composes with the act in the making. Thought in the Act goes beyond proposing to enact a collaborative mode of thinking in the act at the intersection of art, philosophy, and politics. "--
