Mål og innhald

thing-power, as a kind of agency, is the property of an assemblage. Thing-power materialism is a (necessarily speculative) onto-theory

that presumes that matter has an inclination to make connections and form networks of relations with varying degrees of stability. Here,

then, is an affinity between thing-power materialism and ecological thinking: both advocate the cultivation of an enhanced sense of the

extent to which all things are spun together in a dense web, and both warn of the self-destructive character of human actions that are

reckless with regard to the other nodes of the web.

Jane Bennett gives a critical evaluation of the material in regards to the intensive powers of the object per self-organization, conjunction,

interactivity, and actancy (Bennett's reevaluation of Agency of the Object).
