When one thinks of Michel Foucault the title ‘philosopher of technology’ does not immediately spring to mind. However, as Gerrie (2003) notes, perhaps Foucault is best understood as such. Similarly, while Felix Guattari’s work with Deleuze doesn’t explicitly place him in the same category, his 1992 book ‘Chaosmosis: An Ethico-Aesthetic Paradigm’, in part, deals directly with the philosophy of technology. This paper aims to examine the similarities between Foucault and Guattari’s conceptions of technology and ultimately argues that Foucault’s concept of discipline can be understood as what Guattari refers to as an autopoietic machine.
