11 comments on “Theory of the drone 2: Hunting

  1. Reblogged this on Militainment and the National Security State and commented:
    This is another really interesting discussion by Derek Gregory via Geographical Imaginations on Grégoire Chamayou’s Théorie du drone and his genealogies of “militarized man-hunting”, which Gregory links to his own account of late modern war (which we should all be able to read soon in the highly anticipated The Everywhere War).

  2. Thanks for making Chamayou’s text accessible to all of us inveterate Americans out there who have never learned to speak French. I am looking forward to the next installment.

  3. Reblogged this on Nuclear Philosophy and commented:
    Derek Gregory has been reading Chamayou’s text “Theory of the Drone” and posting an excellent series of accompanying comments. What I like about these posts so far is that they high light the role of the drone in the shift from total war as nuclear war to total war as a never-ending manhunt. Nuclear weapons were the ultimate fetish object in the drive to maximize indiscriminate destruction. The drone is poised to become the technological fetish object for the ultimate form of discriminate war.
