Theme: "Archipelagic Thinking & Rhizomes: Deleuze/Guattari and the Project of Emancipations" 


IN THE MIDST OF A MODERN WORLD where terror, violence, and the thirst for domination challenge the human capacity for mercy, compassion, and forgiveness, the task of thinking remains oriented towards the promise of emancipation from the manifold forms of fascisms that oppress and suck the life out of human individuals. Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s practice of philosophizing share in this liberatory promise where the immanence of life must take absolute value over and above all dogmatic forms of thought. In keeping with their most significant and esteemed legacy, the Philosophical Association of the Philippines (PAP), Inc., together with the Philosophy Department of the Ateneo de Naga University and the Deleuze and Guattari Studies Journal, cordially invite you to the 6th International Deleuze and Guattari Studies  in Asia Conference in Ateneo de Naga University, Bicol, Philippines.
