Affect arises in the midst of in-between-ness: in the capacities to act and be acted upon. Affect is an impingement or extrusion of a momentary or sometimes more sustained state of relation as well as the passage (and the duration of passage) of forces or intensities. That is, affect is found in those intensities that pass body to body (human, nonhuman, part-body, and otherwise), in those resonances that circulate about, between, and sometimes stick to bodies and worlds, and in the very passage or variations between these intensities and resonances. (Gregory Seigworth and Melissa Gregg, “Introduction” to The Affect Theory Reader)

      Thus “potency” [δυναμις] means the source [αρχη; ‘principle’] in general of change or motion in another thing, or in the same thing qua other; or the source of a thing’s being moved or changed by another thing, or by itself qua other, [. . . or, nature being in the same genus as potentiality], in the thing itself qua itself.
