Felix Guattari's Schizoanalytic Ecology

The chapter deals with the conceptualization of time and space in Schizoanalytic Cartographies. It first shows how Guattari ecologizes the pair of chronic and aionic time by squaring it within the diagram. It then illustrates this squaring by way of Guattari’s notion of time in his reading of Proust, his idea of the speed of determinability, and the deeply ecological time of kairos as the opportune moment to intervene into and to administer a situation. To conclude this section, it explains Guattari notions of affective and synaptic time. In its second section, the chapter develops, referencing Mandelbrot’s notion of fractal space and Leibniz’ notion of integration, the topological, projective space that is adequate to the space of the world. From within this space, urgent ecological questions can be posed. How to live in this world? How to inhabit its spaces? How to construct spaces that are adequate to the world?

Keywords:   time, space, Chronos, Aion, Proust, kairos, fractal space, integration, Leibniz, topology
