Definition of the noun Deterritorialization

What does Deterritorialization mean as a name of something?

noun

  1. The eradication of social, political, or cultural practices from their native places and populations

Explanation

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 the various use of their concepts - meanings other than those for which they had been created - since they did not believe in the concept of an "original sense". 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.
