http://www.egs.edu/ Manuel De Landa speaking about the idea of intensive thinking as a hallmark of Gilles Deleuzes materialism in a seminar entitled Gilles Deleuze and Science at the European Graduate School in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. De Landa discussed the idea of difference in the circulation of matter and the process of production versus evolution. In intensive thinking, as De Landa explains, intensity replaces extensity; the things that matter in thinking are significance, relevance, importance versus a possible explication of a truth. De Landa spoke about Aristotle, Einstein, Heidegger, and the development of modern physics in an effort to explain his concepts. Public open lecture for the students and faculty of the European Graduate School EGS Media and Communication Studies department program Saas-Fee Switzerland.
