Hypertélie

06.10.08 | Comment?

I am not sure I would use the term “defect”. Simondon writes of hypertélie that it is a specialisation, suggesting that it is not polyvalent: “…et le désadaptent par rapport à un changement même leger…” p. 50

I am not sure Baudrillard knew his biology! My understanding of hypertélie is an exagerated developement, which can potentially consitute a gene.

Simondon is not a dialectical thinker.
