For example, as a feminist philosopher with an academic post in the United States, I am aware (whether consciously or not) of the accepted format for presenting my interpretation of a specific philosopher (whether it be through the presentation of a paper at a conference, an article in a journal, or an academic book). There are various implicit or explicit rules governing my presentation to which I may rigidly adhere or which I can freely vary in order to stretch the limits of acceptable practice.
Although collective assemblages of enunciation and machinic assemblages stabilize certain rules in the working machines of social meaning comprising them, the rules of an abstract machine Introduction 15 are optional and each move changes the rules. The social field contains virtual centers orienting signifying practices and ways of being social subjects. An abstract machine constitutes and conjugates the semiotic and physical systems of the social field, distributing the expressions of the collective assemblage of enunciation and the contents of machinic assemblages of bodies.
Collective assemblages of enunciation and machinic assemblages of bodies always are in reciprocal presupposition in mixtures of words and things that can never be pulled apart. Feminist theory may approach the infinite speed of connecting virtual singularities of thought in ways that allow new perspectives on lived experience, but those singularities always are in keeping with actualizations of thought and matter that relate to the present problems of living. Feminist theory always has had a strong commitment to lived experience; it always has been a theory created in the service of human life rather than in the service of an intellectual ideal that is more important than life itself.
