Thanks for this commentary -- also reminded me of a brief mention of topology at the very end of "Beyond Human Rights" (1993), within _Means without End: Notes on Politics_ (1996): "...Only in a world in which the spaces of states have been thus perforated and topologically deformed and in which the citizen has been able to recognize the refugee that he or she is — only in such a world is the political survival of humankind today thinkable" (p. 26).

"As early as his first book, Stanzas..."

Minor, but I think GA's first book was _The Man Without Content_ (1970), https://www.worldcat.org/title/uomo-senza-contenuto/oclc/693024 -- the English trans. seems to incorrectly list a 1990s reissue as the original publication year...
