Abstract: This review essay discusses Johanna Drucker's "The General Theory of Social Relativity" both as a quantum field theory of social interactions, and as a critique of present social and political formations. The essay explores the book's understanding of the social as a medium, including its constitutive function in the production of the mediality of technical media, the subjectivity of social agents, and the configuration of social fields.
