The Others of Hierarchy: Rhizomatics of Organising

Martin Kornberger, Carl Rhodes, René ten Bos

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch/KonferenzbandBeitrag in Sammelwerk


This chapter focuses on Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's view on the rhizomatics of organising. It discusses Deleuze and Guattari's argument against the very concept of the ‘signifying totality’ that dominates and organises contemporary thinking. It analyses the relevant works of Charles Bukowski and his character Henry Chinaski. It suggests that Chinaski seems relatively unique in his willingness and capability to live an extreme form of rhizomatic life and that it is indeed problematic to see his rupture with the post office as some form of exemplar of how one might deal with the demands that organisation might place on people at work.
