. . : : Adrián Romero Farías: : : . . is a self-happened, self-forged philosopher, writer, reader, critic and thinker, specially interested in the work of Baruch Spinoza, Friedrich Nietzsche, Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault, Félix Guattari, Gregory Bateson, and Pierre Bourdieu. He is a vitalist schizosopher who discovered in flesh that life is intranscendent and meaningless in its own abstraction, a fact to be empirically experienced as an event that comes from the outside in a single hit, that must be achieved as a conquest of the body, that detaches a plane of immanence bringing into sense the intensities of the world, implying an ethical take of consistency as the greatest affirmation of life, the priviledge of a cosmic highway, and a planetary thought. Based in México City, Adrián holds a Masters degree in Social Science, Politics and Communication from Universidad Autónoma Metropolitana Xochimilco. During the period 2002-2010, he investigated the genealogical and socioanalytical aspects of alcoholism, developing a comprehensive theory about Alcoholic Anonymous symbolic efficacy and self-help group interaction. As independent researcher, he is currently discerning about the schizoanalytical aspects of virtual communities, i.e, taking AAs self-help group interaction and addictive patterns as anthropological model. He is an aspirant student for the Doctorate in Social Sciences, and his framework includes a conceptual outline related to social networks and 'online' communities that implies a theoretical posture through which the opposition between real life and virtual life, i.e, the outside/inside symbolic divide of the group, is meant to be dissolved.
