Discourse analysis, such as analyses of mental health discourse, has enabled researchers, practitioners, and policymakers to step back from communications in order to see what is constructed in and from them. The great phenomenologist Edmund Husserl had suggested that such stepping back would help us to break with our natural attitude towards understanding experience. Thus, most discourse analysts do their analyses from afar — viewing videotapes or other media representations, or peering at transcripts, integrating findings from prior discourse analyses, and offering their accounts of what transpired and resulted from different kinds of communications in which they had not participated. Such critical and analytic distance clearly offers useful knowledge, yet what if one could deploy the analytic sensitivities of discourse analysts to participate in the immediacies of helping dialogue?

Joshua David Jordan Translator. Lazzarato calls instead for a new theory capable of explaining how signs function in the economy, in power apparatuses, and in the production of subjectivity. Lazzarato asks: What are the conditions necessary for political and existential rupture at a time when the production of subjectivity represents the primary and perhaps most important work of capitalism?
What are the specific tools required to undo the industrial mass production of subjectivity undertaken by business and the state? What types of organization must we construct for a process of subjectivation that would allow us to escape the hold of social subjection and machinic enslavement? In addressing these questions, Signs and Machines takes on a task that is today more urgent than ever.

Relying heavily on Guattari and assemblage theory, Lazzarato offers asignifying semiotics and other ways humans 'mean' and are subjectivated. His goal is liberation, specifially liberation from 'the linguistic turn' which he sees as limiting. He offers 'social subjection and machinic enslavement' as the fulcrum to leverage system-change. Though the book is very dense at times, the thesis peaks through: "To do so, it is not enough to 'liberate' speech from the apparatuses of power; it must be cons Relying heavily on Guattari and assemblage theory, Lazzarato offers asignifying semiotics and other ways humans 'mean' and are subjectivated.
Though the book is very dense at times, the thesis peaks through: "To do so, it is not enough to 'liberate' speech from the apparatuses of power; it must be constructed. That is when the networks of power are confronted with a completely new situation" p. He uses Foucault's 'parrhesia' as a form of truth-telling that would provide a rupture in the assemblage that reproduces the docile subject: "Parrhesia constitutes a rupture with the dominant significations, an 'irruptive event' that creates a 'fracture' by creating both new possibilities and a 'field of dangers.
The irruption of true discourse 'determines an open situation, or rather opens the situation and makes possible effects which are, precisely, not known. Dec 06, Anarchomintern rated it liked it.

Sep 29, Full Stop added it Shelves: fall Review by Patrick Lyons Tracking down texts that gracefully bridge theory and praxis can be a thankless quest. One never touches ground while the other never sees the sky.
Yet every so often we stumble upon a remarkable book which somehow manages to toe the line between these two camps, if not balancing their influences, at least drawing clear lines of contact. Such a book is not necessarily one which flawlessly and meticulously transposes the philosophical onto the everyday, but rather one which points out their preexisting intimacies, provoking speculation and connecting ground and sky rather than struggling to collapse their distance.
While in essence a theoretical text, Signs and Machines manages to translate abstract systems of micro-politics and semiotics into clear contact with a more grounded reading of affect, the body, and the political potential of any and every given subject, retaining a broad scope of accessible praxis.
Lazzarato, an Italian sociologist perhaps best known to American readers for his theoretical works on immaterial labor and debt in The Making of the Indebted Man, avoids the temptation to simply resituate comfortable theories of the production of subjectivities, and instead calls into question the current stability of this production, or subjection, itself. Lazzarato explains subjection as the ongoing process by which an individual is shaped and crystallized by the mechanics of his or her surrounding socio-political discourses.
In brief, it is the production and positioning of individuals within social groups and identity categories.

Signs and Machines: capitalism and the production of subjectivity
We can choose who we wish to become when we have decided on in principle undecidable questions. What is the future of the human, and what is the role that art has to play in determining this future? The concepts I will be exploring in the investigation of this question are not unknown, and most of them already have their own legacy in critical theory.
The Italian philosopher Maurizio Lazzarato reveals the underpinnings of contemporary subjectivity in the aesthetics and politics of mass media. Maurizio Lazzarato is a philosopher and sociologist. In the s, he was involved with the Autonomia Operaia movement in Italy and was a founding member of the French journal Multitudes. Reviews Luciana Parisi, author of Contagious Architecture. Computation, Aesthetics, and Space : How can time become crystallized in machines? From the cinematic image to the computational image of digital technologies, the artificial dilatation and construction of time has become equivalent to processes of thought. Videophilosophy takes you on a journey across these machinic syntheses of time, inaugurating a much-awaited media theory binding together materiality and technology in an unprecedented fashion.

The machinic register of the semiotic production of Capital operates on the basis of a-signifying semiotics that tune in directly to the body to its affects, its desires, its emotions and perceptions by means of signs. Instead of producing signification, these signs trigger an action, a reaction, a behaviour, an attitude, a posture. These semiotics have no meaning, but set things in motion, activate them. Money, television, science, music, etc. The symbolic semiotics of the body, instead of being centred on language, are as such activity routed through the industrial, machinic, non-human production of images, sounds, words, intensities, movements, rhythms, etc. One needs to remember that for Deleuze and Guattari these a-signifying systems of signs were very much material notions of productivity, not to be confused with the abstract representationalism of the signifying semiotics. The importance of a-signifying semiotics money, machinic devices for the production of images, sounds, words, signs, equations, scientific formulae, music, etc.
Он медленно потянул к себе микрофон. В то же самое мгновение Сьюзан опять бросила взгляд на руку Танкадо, на этот раз посмотрев не на кольцо… не на гравировку на золоте, а на… его пальцы. Три пальца. Дело было вовсе не и кольце, a в человеческой плоти. Танкадо не говорил, он показывал. Он открывал секрет, открывал ключ к шифру-убийце - умоляя, чтобы люди его поняли… моля Бога, чтобы его секрет вовремя достиг агентства.
- Вот откуда шрам. - Весьма сомнительно, чтобы Танкадо связал свои ощущения с выстрелом. - И все же он отдал кольцо, - сказал Фонтейн. - Вы правы, сэр. Но он не искал глазами убийцу. Жертва всегда ищет глазами убийцу. Она делает это инстинктивно.
