This book deals with a new concept of nature based on Deleuze and Guattari's theories of time. This book brings Deleuze and Guattari's work into conversation with the philosophy of nature. As the spatial orientation of the philosophy of nature is critiqued, Marco Altamirano shows that a philosophy of time is a more adequate guide to nature. Deleuze's philosophy of time is examined, from its Bergsonian inheritance to its Nietzschean reevaluation all the way through Deleuze's co authored work with Guattari. Altamirano then deploys the conceptual resources excavated from Deleuze and Guattari in order to show how technology is an essential dimension of the philosophy of nature. After tracing the thread of time or becoming through all these developments, this book ultimately reformulates the philosophy of nature in terms of time and technology. Features: a new Deleuzian philosophy of nature based on time; reveals the importance of Deleuze to the current scholarship on nature; patiently explicates Bergson with regard to Deleuze's Difference and Repetition; and, critiques the usual spatial orientation of the philosophy of nature.
