Example text

Problematies, as the concern of minor science, treats figures according to their affects, while axiomatics or Royal science is a type of essentialism, which defines figures by their necessary characteristics. 50 In discussing the relation of Royal and minor science it is important first of aIl to stress that they inhabit 'ontologically, a single field of interaction', even though theyare 'two formally different conceptions of science' (ATP: 367). Their interaction is one of capture and flight: 'Royal science continually appropriates the contents of vague or nomad science while nomad science continually cuts the contents of Royal science loose' (ATP: 367).

As the partisans of the embodied mind school of cognitive science put it in Naturalizing Phenomenology: what Husserl called 'inexact morphological essences' [the objects of 'minor science'], essences foreign to fundamental classical physics [the paradigm 'Royal science'], are indeed amenable to a physical account, provided that we rely upon the qualitative macrophysics of complex systems (and no longer upon the microphysics of elementary systems). (Petitot, Varela, Pachoud, and Roy 1999: 55) To sum up our account so far, the realm of the actual or the 'system of the strata' is the realm of bodies produced by intensive morphogenetic processes (proceeding via the construction of 'assemblages') while the virtual (the 'plane of consistency') is the differential field of potential transformations that structures such intensive morphogenetic processes.

To take an example doser to the interests of economic geographers, Peter Allen, on the very first page ofan interesting work on complexity theory and urban growth (Allen 1997), shows how most complexity theorists still conceive their work as a struggle against positivism and its insistence on dassical mechanics as the model of all science: Planets, billiard balls, and point particles are helpless slaves to the force fields in which they move, but people are not! 60 Well, of course human beings can break rules, learn, adapt, and so on, but the question is under what conditions do certain sections of human populations develop new fundamental behavior patterns, rather than merely move between the already constituted patterns they predictably adopt due to their social position?
