This chapter examines the role of vitalism, affect and metamorphosis in organisational change. It explores a radical and active formulation of change and attempts to connect the philosophical with the non-philosophical as philosophy needs non-philosophy to make an actual difference in the world. It analyses the relevant work of Brian Massumi and suggests that his call for radicality brings us closer to the becoming-Deleuzian of this century. It also contends that health and vitalism relate to affects as the perception of one's own vitality, one's sense of aliveness, of changeability.

Keywords:   organisational change, vitalism, affect, Brian Massumi, becoming-Deluzian
