What does “Sustainable Development” do? – A Geophilosophical Appraisal




My paper explores some ways in which Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s poststructuralistg  geophilosophy might be used to appraise concepts such as ESD in contemporary contexts of globalisation and international collaboration. I use their concept of mots d’ordre (order-words) to appraise three recent texts (from Australia, North America, and the UK) which explore sustainability in the context of three different discourses-practices: (lifelong) learning, (educational) leadership and (environmental) law.
