This work is the first attempt to integrate poststructuralist thought with the considerable insights of critical human geography. The author seeks not to make conventional approximation of poststructuralist concepts but rather to rethink and to rewrite the world through them. His goal is to refound spatial science as a discipline integrated with the social and natural sciences - replete with human attributes of value, meaning, feeling, fearing, and creating - and shaped by the "diabolical arts" of thinkers such as Deleuze, Guattari, Baudrillard, Derrida, and Lyotar. New geography, this book shows, has once again becomes possible. Doel draws out and develops the inherent spatiality at the heart of postmodern and poststructuralist perspectives, fashioning a virtuosic and thought-provoking account of the fundamental differences that space, place, context, and milieu make to how we understand and engage with the world and others around us. Developing the radical consequences of his approach across a range of accessible examples, from film to quantum mechanics, the author demonstrates the transformative and enlightening qualities of his argument.
