Hope and Affect: An Interview with Brian Massumi

Last night I came across this interview between Brian Massumi and Mary Zournazi in which they discuss a wide selection of topics such as hope, affect, ethics, and political ecology.

Here is some of what Massumi says:

“Because it’s all about being in this world, warts and all, and not some perfect world beyond or a better world of the future, it’s an empirical kind of belief. Ethical, empirical – and creative, because your participation in this world is part of a global becoming. So it’s about taking joy in that process, wherever it leads, and I guess it’s about having a kind of faith in the world which is simply the hope that it continue … But again it is not a hope that has a particular content or end point – it’s a desire for more life, or for more to life.”
