    anyone know why “affect” is all the rage and Heideggerian/phenomenological mood talk has been eclipsed?

      I’m not well placed to comment, but I think it’s been this way for a long time. I think it stems from Deleuze’s reading of Spinoza, and the take up of that within Geography, Cultural Studies etc. But I’m happy to be corrected if there is a more complicated story to be told. I don’t think Heidegger’s reading ever gained much traction outside of some debates in continental philosophy.

        thanks S.E. I figured it was some reverberations of the ‘new’ materialisms (as you say) but it I wasn’t sure if it was a more PC way of saying emotion coming from extensions of theories of embodiment.
