Geophilosophy employs a range of concepts to reimagine the discipline of philosophy. Invented by Gilles Deleuze (1925–1995) and Félix Guattari (1930–1992), the field has grown and been elaborated by many thinkers. After reviewing the genesis of geophilosophy and its uptake in human geography through the 1990s, several key aspects are described: becoming rather than being; affect, virtuality, and the nonrepresentational; space; and minor theory. Finally, new geophilosophies that are emerging from feminist, posthumanist, and decolonial scholarship are reviewed.
