Affect and Attention After Deleuze and Whitehead

Russell J. Duvernoy

Edinburgh University Press

The book concludes by summarizing key implications for ecological attunement in the context of ecological crisis. Though such implications remain resolutely pluralistic, one imperative is challenging the dominance of received norms and cultivating attention to quality and affect prior to their consolidation in such norms. A tactic for this is through cultivating attention to centre-periphery relations and corresponding background-foreground shifts. Finally, Deleuze’s repurposing of Bergson’s concept of fabulation is discussed in the context of resisting hegemonic norms in an affirmative rather than reactionary manner. This notion of fabulation is connected to Whitehead’s discussion of “propositions” and “lures for feeling”. Such affirmative fabulation seeks to create connections across differences rather than consolidate us versus them narratives. This involves an openness to the unexpected and unpredictable rather than the dogma of propagandas or ideological identity.

Keywords:   Deleuze, Fabulation, “Lures for feeling”, Whitehead
