What appeared liberating to Deleuze’s earliest readers, his great hermeneutic revolution of asking how texts work and not what they mean, is in fact something of a distraction.

No eBook available Amazon. Instead one must develop a correlation between the two, for it is often the case that philosophers adopt certain psychosocial types as a means of making contact with their historical milieu.

But as I have argued elsewhere, his aim was rather to find a point of mediation that could encompass both perspectives without compromise. Let us remember once again one of Marx’s caveats: The Method in his Madness 51 regime of visibility, not that regime’s point of origin, and it passed into obscurity because visibility itself, mimesis in other words, reached its limit.

What it does is give all philosophers the right to conceive their ideas in delleuzism atmosphere of their own choosing, it is literally the creation of a hothouse for concepts, a 64 place where they can thrive in a shelter specifically built for them.

But on what grounds should we accept Freud’s presumption that this process of identification is in fact as straightforward and direct as he takes it to be? Create a reading list or add to an existing list.

So long as a continuity between a sequence of events, in this case a chain of concepts, or ideas, can be established then history still has something to say. One of the first illusions philosophy must shatter then is the mistaken conflation of philosophers and psychosocial types.

It is characteristic of philosophical writing that it mdta continually confront the question of representation. But commentaty perception of the thing is the same image related to another special image which frames it, and which only retains a partial action from it, and only reacts to it mediately.

The Deleuzian challenge is therefore to think the difference between two incommensurable series like the decoded flow of desire and the coded flow of thought without recourse to strategies of homo- genisation such as expressionism amounts to in commengary in the hands of everyone except Spinoza the special case of Spinoza’s expressionism will 7 be discussed in the second chapter.

Was it in his self-analysis, or rather in his Goethian classical culture? Or failing to see the significance of the military and religious organisation of the Wolf- 86 Man’s obsessions. Terence Blake rated it liked it Aug 22, How keta by what means?

By the same token, either Marcel loves Albertine for herself, or he loves her because she recalls Swann’s love of Odette, or even his own love for his mother, and perhaps behind that his ambivalent affection for his hypochondriac aunt, Leonie.

My point is that one can only truly become-other in Deleuze’s view by escaping molarity and embracing molecularity and that has nothing to do with acting differently. His frequent emphasis on the need for experimentation in philosophy deleuzims be taken to mean that philosophy must confront representation as both its limit and its condition of possibility; as such, philosophy is primarily, if not ultimately, a problem of representation.

This is what it means to discover the event inside the action. This would at least save it from the embarrassment of what must either be miraculous concepts of the type that fall from the sky, or pure projections of the type philosophy commmentary dreams up.

Deleuzism: A Metacommentary

Deleuziwm to Book Page. What I aim to adduce at this point is the system of thought Deleuze presents as the necessary condition of his philosophising, which is to say, I want to specify as precisely as possible how one goes about practising Deleuzism. Deleuziem only does it confirm the existence of an already well-known trend commentarryit also suggests, perhaps, that the key philosophical problem of the era was the lack of a means of writing or speaking about things that did not at once distort and transmute them.

Concepts, Deleuze insists, do nothing more than survey their compo- nents at infinite speed; what is more, they do not deleuuzism mixed up in the state 70 of affairs in which they are effectuated. See also Patton and Smith Their most incisive correction of him is thus able to be conducted via a single, question which Difference and Repetition prepared the ground for Ironically, to try to recover a sympathy between the respective philoso- phies is to engage in precisely the practice he eschews most, namely deleuzis history of philosophy.

Before he wrote his first books, he could only assume trans- cendentalism was a problem; once he’d written his book on Hume he could say why it was a problem and suggest how it might be overcome. Moreover, such reinventions and recuperations ultimately serve only to re- instate the very sort of history of philosophy Deleuze tried desperately to unshackle himself from.

What I mean to suggest by this is that Deleuze’s plane of immanence is the creation of a context in which competing voices can function as perspectives edleuzism a particular problem.


If my above mentioned correlation with desire and differance holds, then we must expect it to be a rather fluid notion, however rigorous its definition.

The deepest connection between Deleuze and Marx, then, at least from the perspective of their mutual antagonism towards Hegel, is the sheer fact that like Marx he treats production as a necessary 25 abstraction by which to begin with the concrete. It is, I believe, our strongest hermeneutic tip on how to read What is Philosophy?

It enables a second, and equally crucial, postulate that provides the means for Deleuze to turn his brand of pure philosophy into social critique, namely the proposed parallelism between desiring-production and social 26 production. Sometimes it is purely a methodological hint that Deleuze takes from them, as I will show is partly the case with Spinoza, while at other times it is an ethic, as it is with Nietzsche, but usually it is a peculiar problema- tisation that Deleuze prizes most highly in the philosophers he inter- rogates.

These prescriptions taken together give us our starting point: Mike Blanchard rated it liked it Jun 14, Its essential problematic, as Deleuze and Guattari admit, is the fact that desiring-production has to be induced on the basis of representations, which is to say, discovered where it is not. At the level of this primary vital sensibility, the lived present constitutes a past and future in time.

While such a device preserves the integrity of the two terms, rigorously main- taining the copy status of the copy and the original status of the original, according to Deleuze it does not actually explain the relation between the two but in fact actively suppresses the very question.

For while Deleuze says that desire is repressed by representation, he does not allow that delfuzism particular form of repression endows it with meaning in the way that, say, surface is animated by depth, or the manifest can be conceived as a figuration by other means of the latent, not even that a relation of delayed identification obtains. The philosopher must concede ground to the categorical imperatives of the type or else blow his or her cover and risk falling into the enforced obscurity of misapprehension.
