Example text

A kind of libidinal economy has developed round the car, in which subjectivities get invested in the car as an enormously powerful and mobile object. (This volume: 26) On the one hand, there is the ‘purified’ machine (cf. Latour, 1993); the car is denied any share of agency that Michael gives hybrids. On the other, there is self, reduced to psyche. Unfortunately either vision, whether of hybrids or of psyches, inevitably atomizes the social. It is to suggest, in some fundamental way, that automobility is asocial, even anti-social.

The car as ‘system’ The kind of system we are faced with in discussions of automobility is not to be conflated, we would argue, with the merely systematic. To take the totalizing effects of the ‘car system’ seriously is not just to be asked to consider the contingently agglutinative effects of commerce, policy and planning. Yes, sociologically, the ‘car system’, like any other institution, is subject to a process of sedimentation over time, but the propositions of the automobility thesis surely raise issues of a different order?

Being static, stationary, or even just being ‘slow’, are increasingly more difficult ways of being-in-the-world to defend. Going further, we have argued the case for the concept of motility to be added to that of mobility. The fix on mobility – and its hyperextension into automobility – masks much else that is going on apart from its individuating effects.
