AVILA GAITAN, Iván Darío. Rosi Braidotti's philosophical nomadism: a materialist approach to the metaphysics of presence. Tabula Rasa [online]. 2014, n.21, pp.167-184. ISSN 1794-2489.

This paper advances an overarching reading of nomadic philosophy created by Rosi Braidotti. The central thesis lies on the fact that her philosophy draws a deep materialism making up a radical alternative to the metaphysics of presence, which is understood as a big discourse system prevailing in the West. one that states the truth on reality itself, and that is also a wide political ontology. Aiming to discuss our central formulation, we will examine the reading done by the author of which she calls "postmodernity" and "figurations". What lies behind such issues is a novel way to conceive knowledge production, where depiction is always an intervention-creation, a displacement plunging its roots in post-metaphysical ontology. Finally, we will address the main figuration done by Braidotti, nomadic subject, and will advance several aspects central to her philosophical nomadism in theoretical-stylistic terms.

Palavras-chave : figurations; nomadic subject; philosophical nomadism; metaphysics of presence; materialism; post modernity.
