Abstract

Territories of difference: place, movements, life, redes (Escobar 2008) is the latest major work from Arturo Escobar, author of the broadly debated Encountering development (Escobar 1995), a central work of the so-called post-development school. Those familiar with Escobar's earlier work will find that, although Territories of difference retains a common critical impetus, this latest publication bears evidence of a noteworthy theoretical and methodological update since the heyday of post-developmental theory. While maintaining firmly in sight the perennial targets of Escobar's early critical trajectory – development, modernity and westernisation –Territories of difference seeks to make an ontological breach by opening a whole new framework of thinking the political and realising the social. This theoretical opening, informed by activist practice, biological processes and post-structuralist thinking, has as its enduring resource nothing other than life itself.
