Abstract

This essay reflects on Gilles Deleuze's important essay on the societies of control and argues that this essay remains to be integrated into Deleuze's thinking. The essay compromises a kind of self-criticism, in which a number of Deleuzian concepts are revealed to be in close congruence with the emerging capitalist society of control. This traumatic obsolescence of Deleuze's own conceptual tools remains to be thought through. Such a thinking may have to confront the abstract formulation of control and life in Deleuze's conceptual vocabulary and consider a new thinking and new weapons of critical analysis.
