5. 5. Definitional work A collection of heterogeneous elements somehow functioning together ◦Machinic assemblages/agencements machiniques (stuff) ◦Collective assemblages of enunciation (capabilities) River Definitions In ATP DeLanda Sociology de Freitas Math Education

9. 9. Manuel DeLanda – Sociology “Ontological project” (ADHD example) ◦(Just add strata!) Getting unstuck: ◦Assemblage against totalities ◦Assemblage against essences River Definitions In ATP DeLanda Sociology de Freitas Math Education
10. 10. de Freitas – Math Education Ontological project: “Inclusive materialism” E.g. “Intra-action” Getting unstuck: ◦Assemblage against mind-body ◦ Child-cube-concept (Hwang & Roth) ◦Assemblage against process-product ◦ Movement-diagram (Chatelet) River Definitions In ATP DeLanda Sociology de Freitas Math Education
11. 11. Closing River Definitions In ATP DeLanda Sociology de Freitas Math Education ◦ Box of tools ◦ On method: Possible ‘conceptual practices’ ◦ Getting unstuck (deconstructive but non-prescriptive) Thank you! psuth@uga.edu
