282. Order and Chaos in Society

Thus, rather than an endless discussion of biopolitics, sovereignty and disciplinary societies, Bousquet undertakes a novel historical analysis of four different regimes of warfare – the mechanical, the thermodynamic, the cybernetic, and the chaoplexic. Therefore, much like how Foucault uncovers various epistemes within his historical studies, or how Deleuze uncovers abstract machines guiding assemblages of matter and language, so too does Bousquet uncover the metaphors underlying the various regimes of scientific warfare – the clock, the engine, the computer, and the network.
