But how do we recognise 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? In effect, it is the presupposition of a form of expression into which concepts can insert themselves as a form of content. Agustin marked it as to-read Aug 28, How should we read with Deleuze?

Less a guidebook commenyary Deleuze–which is what the title might suggest–than an attempt to commmentary a dialectical Deleuze out of the philosophy of someone who always spoke passionately against dialectics a project with which I am sympathetic.

In the second moment, which is no longer subtractive, the objective perception the universe is commntary and reorganised so as to surround the subjective image, or perception proper. It is best seen in the implicit correlation he draws between intuition and empiricism: According to Deleuze, Nietzsche points us to two different diagnoses here: Our dreams convince us that that is so. If the actors are the concepts they are in effect embodiments of ideality because they stand in the place usually given to the ideal, namely the conceptual.

It sets in motion new types of flows that the old, established breakflows Oedipus in league with the family and the State cannot handle and have to adapt themselves to or else be destroyed.

If philosophy is not merely to contribute to this malaise still another mean-spirited critique it has to offer something hopeful, utopian even, and in Deleuze’s case it is joy. This is why we must take up the question of what a body can do: Given that Deleuze’s primary assertion relating to representation is that we must find the means of escaping its clutches, we can conclude that any such experimentations philosophers should choose to engage themselves in must be of the order of a practice of de-representation a working- through of passionsone whose ultimate goal, moreover, must finally be the achievement of something like non-representation adequate ideas.


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.

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. The legitimate use of the disjunctive synthesis, by contrast, recognises that Numen is only apparently a causality, and that real causality resides elsewhere.

It amounts to thinking one can read the book of the soul in the book written in ink, which cannot 3 commenary done because that book, as Blanchot said, is defined by its absence. So what possessed them to write such an evidently redundant book?

This, in an ultra-shorthand way, is what transcendental empiricism actually means.

Borges’s cmmentary fantasy of writing the same book, word for word, but from scratch, and thereby enriching the original without actually copying 2 it, is taken as corroboration of Melville’s insight by Deleuze. Yet, as Negri reminds us, Spinoza was not killed, either by instruments of the State, the Church, or any of their more zealous adherents.

Ironically, to try to recover a sympathy between the respective philoso- phies is to engage in precisely the practice he eschews most, namely the history of philosophy. The greatest of all illusions is that an ideological purification, or better still, purging, is all it takes to reach an adequate idea of our true powers.

To put it another way, whereas the disjunctive synthesis refers to the process of perception, the correlation and coordination of deluzism in other words, the conjunc- tive synthesis refers to our affective experiences in phenomenological terms, it is like the difference between noema and noesis.

In his self-analysis he discovers something about which he remarks: The confusion arises, they helpfully explain, when a concept is mistaken for a plane, as happens when immanence is made immanent to something, since this something cannot but be a 84 concept.

Hence their confidence that one drop of pure desire is enough to revolutionise the world. My metareview is that it didn’t very much. One wonders if this isn’t what the greatness of Marx would have turned out to be, in Deleuze’s hands. The metaphor itself seems to have been taken from Malcolm Lowry.

Only by this means can we decide if his project has any connection or relevance to the times in which he found himself. So Deleuze resorts to evoking it by whatever means he has to hand.

These levels are real, not arbitrary, because of the way contractions even habits have to be contracted can become so ingrained that they slip from view, becoming a part of the apparatus itself, whether that be the body or the mind. It is an attempt to engage with his work as he himself engaged with the work of others, and, it is hoped, as much a 18 demonstration as it is an application.
