This chapter initially examines how concepts are created in and by political philosophy through an analysis of why concept creation occurs and of the conditions under which it becomes political. Philosophy basically creates concepts in response to internal as well as external problems; in case of an external problem, philosophy is applied within its real-world setting, resulting into political philosophy. The latter part of the chapter is concerned with the concept of nomadism developed by Deleuze and Guattari in the “Treatise on Nomadology” and the principles of nomadology itself, including nomad science, music, and affirmative nomadology.

Keywords:   political philosophy, nomadism, Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari, Treatise on Nomadology, nomad science, nomad music, affirmative nomadology
