Languages of publication
The article proposes a reconstruction of the basic assumptions of the concept of movement introduced by Deleuze and Guattari in A Thousand plateaus. The reconstruction, based on the strategy of a close reading, distinguishes three basic elements describing the absolute movement of war machine: a contingent change of direction dictated by a factual necessity, free action and a creative act. The context of reflection on the movement of a war machine is the question of its role in developing urbanity. The article puts forward the thesis that the city and its culture is the effect of a productive tension between the smooth and striated space, the duration of which depends on maintaining difference which divide them.
