Similar processes operate in human territorial phenomena, but ATP does not use the bird only to get to the human. For structuralists antipathetic to post-structuralism, sympathy for or conversion to Deleuzean geophilosophy may be a hard sell indeed. The structure in ATPis more akin to a pattern, a 'fiat' and emergent network 'machine' 'extending' the intensive and actualizing the virtual. Structures that appear deep and eternal - particularly those in the anthropogenic realm - nevertheless always have spatio-temporal limits, thus room for maneuvering, m(inipulation, and (trans) mutation.

Such questions 34 Toward a geography of complex spaces of human freedom are only explicable when we address emergence above and below the level of the subject. 61 In moving us above and below the subject Deleuze and Guattari do not deny that there is a genuine subject (on the level of practical effectiveness, not as an ontological substance), but they do stress that it is only an intermediate globallevel of organization. There is thus a way to talk about degrees of freedom of human action or agency.

Beside theory, what are the sources for a 'geography of complexity' or a geographical study that employs geophilosophy? One of the attractions of ATP is its edectic collection of texts drawn from an astounding array of disciplines. Many of the sources are straightforward, non-philosophical accounts of material systems, and it is fair to say that one can find materialist accounts in even the most atheoretical sources. Also, because we have a certain fondness for ethnographie research based on the geographical knowledge of informants, we can say that whether or not a source is theoretically aligned has no bearing on its value in a geography of complexity.
