Sobre los gestos especulativos y el estilo, por Brian Massumi

por Juan Pablo Anaya

“Abductions are ‘lived hypotheses’. They are thought in the immediacy of their enactment. This means that they are felt as directly as they are thought. They are thinking-feelings of the import of the situation at hand, replete with competing tendencies and alternative paths. Their enactive nature qualifies them as gestures. Thinking-feelings are speculative gestures: they convoke potential and carry alternatives. As gestures, they do this with style.”

Massumi, The Politics of Affect.
