Ecology of Affect: Intensive Milieus and Contingent Encounters

Interesting Open Access book publication Ecology of Affect: Intensive Milieus and Contingent Encounters for download which discusses the background of new materialism and some recent theoretical developments concerning affect, time, sensation, ecology, economy, technology, and politics.  Simondon, Deleuze, Peirce, Meillassoux make their conceptual appearances as well.

“The way we conceive the human today is particularly affected by the shifts in media technology during the 20th century. Affect emerges as the new liminal concept that renders the body compatible in novel ways with the technology and politics of media. By ways of a relational reorganization the organic end technological life is condensed in a new, intense way to an ecology of affects.”
