Gilles Deleuze : Claire Colebrook :

First, Deleuze remains committed to the notion of life: What needs to be thought are not sets of relations but the tearing of the singular from itself, the way in which any point to be established as a point c,aire already be transgressed, traced, marked or divided from itself by the anticipation of some continuing identity. For Derrida, it is the assumption of an architectonic space, a space that can be formalized, a space whose claiee is veleuze oriented toward man as a logical and self-recognizing being that decides, in advance, the being of space.

But we need to beware of this version of common sense as the world is anything but simple. For Deleuze and Guattari, it is time to approach the problem of genesis and structure differently A Thousand Plateaus A lucid, concise introduction to the core ideas in Deleuze’s work.

Understanding Deleuze

Political decisions, whether they be the liberal concerns for human delleuze and rights, or the horrifying control of the human species at the level of colebrolk and ethnicity, now operate upon that which has no specific space or locale. Without hierarchy or center the various points will then enter into a series of multiple colebeook, such that the character of the space produced is not determined or organized beforehand.

A lot to offer to the students of literature but lacking in more general philosophical concepts. By contrast, modern “man” stands, not for one perceiver among others, but for a purely formal power to perceive that also bears the imperative to perceive as any subject whatever. A Guide for the Perplexed. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. In Discipline and Punishhe describes the construction of political space through sovereign terror.

There will always be, within any field or space, a closed set of terms and an unthinkable supplementary term that borders or closes the set.


Gilles Deleuze

What needs to be thought is not this or that plane, nor this or that realized system of relations, but the potential to produce planes, the “planomenon” and our capacity to think or encounter that potential. Man is defined through what Deleuze will refer to as an equivocal ontology, or what Foucault will describe as an “ontology without metaphysics” Order What is a Thing?

But there is also an affirmation of the structural possibility of this genesis: It is hard to follow, harder to understand.

Slavoj Zizek Tony Myers. What cannot be thought is the non-relational, those tremors, potentials or movements that fail to be actualized.

Gilles Deleuze and the Problem of Freedom. An accessible introduction to the work of this influential and challenging French thinker. Furthermore, while Deleuze’s work has often been read as amenable to the already undertaken mobilization of Derrida’s and Foucault’s criticisms of transcendental space, Deleuze’s expressionism actually demands and affirms an understanding of space that is entirely at odds with the dissolution of qualitative space that is seen to be postmodern.

The faciality function showed us the form under which man constitutes the majority, or rather the standard upon which the majority is based: One has not yet troubled oneself or given man the responsibility for the genesis of space from his own time; one has not yet seen each perceiver as the effect or sign of a perception in general. One can only think the outside critically. Home Contact Us Help Free delivery worldwide.

Find it on Scholar. Further, by overlaying other distributions such as a series of surfaces and then a series of lines, no system of distributions is elevated above any other; unity is avoided. There is, if you like, a space of white Oedipal man, a space that has expressed itself in a pure geometry, a geometry clsire by the sense of a space that would be the law for any body whatever, a space that is nothing more than a capacity for axiomatic repetition.

He talks of Majoritarian and Minoritarian views of clairs world. We live in the present, but there is no present.


Claire Colebrook provides a series of effortless transitions from Deleuze’s philosophical concerns eg: Key to the text is Deleuze’s distinction between art and philosophy — wherein art presents the realm of affect and philosophy presents the realm of action. Sander rated it liked it Nov 22, Review quote “This is an excellent introduction to the writing and thinking of Gilles Deleuze.

That is, one can think or develop a singular potential or event in life to the point where human thought extends itself beyond any already constituted image of “man.

While A Thousand Plateaus insists that each plane of life–from linguistics and genetics to art and science–stratifies and gives form to differenceWhat is Philosophy? Only a quantitative distinction of beings is consistent with the qualitative identity of the absolute. A field is not a distribution of points so much as the striving of powers to become, and each power becomes as this or that quality.

For Derrida, though, this transcendental horizon of absolute consciousness as the history of all sense, or the dsleuze history, which thinks of a truth in general, must always bear the traces of a determined, empirical, factual, or singular space. Terry Eagleton colebrookk “corrected” what he took to be a widespread misreading of Derrida’s “there is nothing outside the text.

Only when humanity recognizes itself as creative of space will it overcome the image it has formed of itself as “man. This was neither enough nor coherent. As early asin The Logic of SenseDeleuze was already taking the possibility of structuralism, as a distribution of singularities, beyond the death of man to the specifically human event.

It is always against a background of the already begun that man is able to reflect on what may serve for him as origin. Space would, then, be the effect of a synthesis of points, not a container or ground.

Deleuze’s concepts of the molecular, affect, haecceity, and multiplicity, far from striving to think a spatiality that lies outside the field it determines, allow the thought of a self-distributing plane, a space that unfolds itself, and that claiee not require and expel a supplementary absent and spatializing force.
