A sociology of thymotic formations (i.e., social relations of esteem) might be conceived as a social territoriology. This short essay ventures into the idea that honor can be explained not simply as a case of Hegelian dialectic of recognition. On the contrary, honor acts as a territorialising device, that is one first imagined and designed to manage social intensities. The regime of existence bred by such a device turns out to be one precariously located on the verge between a reactive and an active interaction circuit. It is an interface region that shows peculiar topological features to be analysed accurately
