Affirmative Methods

Massumi describes these methods as techniques by which and author adds or invents rather than critiques others. He writes, "It is simply that when you are busy critiquing you are less busy augmenting…There are times when debunking is necessary…Foster or debunk. It’s a strategic question. Like all strategic questions, it is basically a question of timing and proportion. Nothing to do with morals or moralizing Just pragmatic.” P.13
