The Forgetting of the Ethics of Immanence

Abstract [en]

The compelling promise of emergence, and its attendant aesthetics, has by now found its recognised place in the field of advanced digital architecture. Respected in both the disciplines of philosophy and architecture, Manuel DeLanda deploys the concept of emergence as a means to demystify the dynamic properties of a world. Concurrently, digital architects fascinated in living systems celebrate this animate dynamism by investing it in their sophisticated, computationally driven design processes. DeLanda is also well known for returning the difficult concepts of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s philosophical lexicon to the disciplines of science and mathematics. Many of these same concepts have been implicitly and explicitly influential in the new biotechnological paradigm in architecture and its productive use of the logic of emergence. This essay will argue that while the logic of emergence expresses great explanatory power and ventures a novel aesthetics, it risks forgetting an ethics of immanence.
