… logic of affects… Agosto 7, 2012

Posted by paulo jorge vieira in Uncategorized.



It is in fostering this element of uncertainty that the refrain becomes ethical. The refrain in itself is pragmatic not ethical. Yet its pragmatism Forces it to deal with the uncertain. (…) More ethical refrains preserve a degree of uncertainty, an opening to affective infinities and powers, while making the affective more livable. This is why the “logic of affects” needs the refrain. If affects are deterritorialized and “non discursive” then they are still “awaiting their existential completion” (Guattari1996, 158) and it is here that the refrain has to do its work. It is refrains that can keep Guattari’s pluralist subjectivity functional, by “keeping tinle” (1995a, 15) in an aestlletic practice of duration, repetition, and difference engaging with the affective world.
