Subject[edit]

This entry seems to be more about De Landa's applications of Deleuze/Guattari's concepts than about the concepts themselves. I've seen other applications of D/G and "assemblage" that look entirely different. I don't think this page is adequate (though I'm not sure exactly how to change it).

Indeed, the subject of the article is a book by De Landa, not a concept. This was clear before you removed the lead, which I now restored. The book seems notable enough to have an article. --Elekhh (talk) 07:16, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Agreed with the first comment; in the absence of a page on Assemblage in any social science discipline (though it is increasingly used by geographers, anthropologists, philosophers, and so on) why have a page just referring to this book? It seems premature. If I hear no objections within a couple of months I will re-create the Assemblage (Philosphy) page, which was deleted as 'the concept is never explained' and use this page material to start the page, with De Landa's book as a reference. 194.80.178.1 (talk) 12:49, 8 April 2015 (UTC)
