This article is intended to identify concepts of Gilles Deleuze's philosophy for the construction of affirmative biopolitics in Roberto Esposito's work. In order to present this reading and analysis proposal, it is necessary to address the way the concept of "deterritorialization" works in Esposito's analysis of the Italian theory and to specify the epistemological concern to which the Italian difference belongs as a geophilosophy that does not expect to be established as a precedent for the construction of a national state-centered thinking. The analysis from the concept of "deterritorialization" will also contribute, in a second part, to specify, from the field of politics, the relation between both philosophers by linking the Urstaat described by Gilles Deleuze with the reflections about the immunitary State proposed by Roberto Esposito. The approach between both concepts will be carried out from the Deleuzian reflections about the "barbarian despotic machine", which provides elements through which it is possible to cross both concepts from the problem of life, thus getting closer to a biopolitical reflection. The development of the critical approach analysis between the concepts of "politics" and "life" will be addressed in a third part through the identification of some of those concepts, such as the impersonal, which will contribute to the construction of affirmative biopolitics in Roberto Esposito's work. However, this approach will also aim to questioning the Statenation as a privileged political organization and project this critique to the epistemological and political effects of both philosophies.
