GO SPOTTING: “A Thousand Plateaus- Capitalism and Schizophrenia”

Sunday January 3, 2010

“I came across some interesting go-related material in my reading recently and wanted to pass the source along to those who may find it of interest,” writes Marc Willhite. ” In chapter 12 of their book A Thousand Plateaus- Capitalism and Schizophrenia Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari use a go in opposition to chess as a model to begin describing their concept of ‘nomadology.’  (pp.352-53)  Not the lightest reading to be sure, but it certainly gave me a new appreciation for the qualities that make go the confounding and fascinating game that it is.”
