Definition of the noun Deterritorialization
What does Deterritorialization mean as a name of something?
- The eradication of social, political, or cultural practices from their native places and populations
Deterritorialization is a concept created by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari in Anti-Oedipus, which, in accordance to Deleuze's desire and philosophy, quickly became used by others, for example in anthropology, and transformed in this reappropriation. Deleuze and Guattari encouraged this use of their concepts in other senses than that they were "originally created for", since they did not believe in this conception of an "original sense", which could be related to phenomenology. Deleuze said, for example, that the people who had best understood the Anti-Oedipus were persons that were neither philosophers nor psychoanalysts. He particularly liked a letter sent to him by an origami-maker, who had seen new inspiration in the book Le Pli.
