    2. The kind of theoretical text that makes you wonder Interesting, but are humans this complex or are we just fooling ourselves that we are this intriguing.


    3. With regards to the intention of the author to offer the reader the gift of headache, this book is clearly successful because it made my head throb with pain But equally I must say that I feel this headache is a gift, because it opens the possibility to review Deleuzian thought in altenative ways and has opened up many possibilities Thank you very much, it has been received.



    4. Only read relevant chapters An awesome book that proposes tons of scintillating questions and a new paradigm of thinking about humanities and science.



    5. When Parables for the Virtual burst onto the philosophical scene at the turn of the millennium, it did so as if a bombshell lobbed from an alien world Against the reigning spirit of the time which spoke in terms of signs, discourses and subject positions , Parables presented an alternate universe in which the interlaced notions of movement, affect, event, and sensation were to be taken seriously as vectors of philosophical investigation While the groundwork was laid down by those like Gilles Del [...]


    6. Down with romantic irrationalism in the academy It obscures issues that really matter, like how and why things matter to us humans Massumi s conception of affect in this book is mind body dualism dressed in Spinozist clothing, as Ruth Leys perceptively points out in Critical Inquiry 37.3 Spring 2011 , 434 472 The philosophers Phil Hutchinson and Matthew Ratcliffe s recent work on affect and intentionality demonstrates that neat splits between the two are rare, at least for enculturated beings wh [...]


    7. Massumi here strikes out from his Deleuzian base to new, relatively unbroken ground I was impressed with his ambition At times he is unabashed in his creation of a new vocabulary for describing the phenomena he is exploring, namely movement, affect and sensation, as the title sets out This work will be indispensable in the future to others working on the same problematic Massumi takes up here.As a student of architecture, I found this work challenging and provocative for its implication on build [...]




    8. Gotta love a book where the author writes of his intention to be headache inducing in the introduction day I ll finish this one
