Paradoxes of Nowadays or Deficit as a Form of Power

Abstract: The article discusses the most relevant form of contemporary deficit – the lack of time for intellectual work. The study analyses the question why under similar conditions Europe has no such deficit of opportunities for mental labor. Therefore the experience of the European Middle Ages is considered, how the principles of cultural compromise were formed at struggle against the popes and emperors.

Keywords: culture, computerization, communication, deficit of time, compromise, mediation.

[6] Rhizome is a philosophical concept developed by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. It is what Deleuze calls an "image of thought", based on the botanical rhizome, that apprehends multiplicities. Deleuze and Guattari use the terms "rhizome" and "rhizomatic" to describe theory and research that allows for multiple, non-hierarchical entry and exit points in data representation and interpretation. Deleuze and Guattari outline the concept of the rhizome as follows: (1) principles of connection and heterogeneity, (2) principle of multiplicity, (3) principle of asignifying rupture, etc. Deleuze and Guattari use the terms "rhizome" and "rhizomatic" to describe theory and research that allows for multiple, non-hierarchical entry and exit points in data representation and interpretation. They oppose it to an arborescent conception of knowledge, which works with dualist categories and binary choices. A rhizome works with planar and trans-species connections, while an arborescent model works with vertical and linear connections. Their use of the "orchid and the wasp" is taken from the biological concept of mutualism, in which two different species interact together to form a multiplicity. Hybridation or Horizontal gene transfer would also be good illustrations. URL:
