Gilles Deleuze Capitalism, flows, the decoding of flows, capitalism and schizophrenia, psychoanalysis, Spinoza.

What is it that moves over the body of a society? It is always flows, and a person is always a cutting off [coupure] of a flow. A person is always a point of departure for the

Does Difference Have a Type?

5 Okt , 2017  

I just spoke yesterday yesterday at the University of Pennsylvania on the topics of “control societies” and “ontologies of difference,” two themes that have interested me a great deal over the years. In fact I have been so struck by Deleuze’s essay “Postscript on Societies of Control,” a short and

Part III. The Economic Concept of Ordinal Value in Chapter 9

There are, according to D&G, as outlined in Chapter 1, three conceptually-distinct but ontologically-interwoven models for the composition of the assemblage of an object. For our purposes, we have said we will take up the object qua assemblage that is ...

NONCONCEPTUAL NEGATIVITY: ADORNO+LIFE+DELEUZE

20 Jul , 2017  

NEGATION OF NEGATION vs AFFIRMATION

In Difference and Repetitioni, particularly in sections written on negativity, Deleuze, discussing the distinction between “being and non-being” and “being and non-being” rejects the consideration of the latter under the aegis of Hegelian dialectics. He is talking about Plato’s The Sophist and according ...

From a Philosophically Clean-Shaven Marx to a Philosophically Decolonized Deleuze

21 Jun , 2017  

[This is a really rough outline/introductory sketch for the third chapter of my dissertation, which takes up the relationship between the persisting residual eurocentrism in specific interpretations of D&G’s political project, and how D&G themselves constructed a framework by which to eradicate its lasting traces in both thinking and revolutionary ...

What are the most philosophically important numbers? Heidegger evokes the fourfold; Deleuze and Guattari a thousand (but it could have been more). For Badiou, the multiple plays its role, as does infinity. For Hegel the triad and the operation of the negative. For Irigaray it is sometimes two, and sometimes

Deleuze/Guattari: ‘Stop the World!’

31 Mai , 2017  

One of the things of profound interest in Castaneda’s books, under the influence of drugs, or other things, and of a change of atmosphere, is precisely that they show how the Indian manages to combat the mechanisms of interpretation and instill in the disciple a presignifying semiotic, or even an ...

Returning to Revolution: Deleuze, Guattari, and Zapatismo

19 Mai , 2017  

We are witnessing today the return of a new theory and practice of revolution. This return, however, takes none of the traditional forms:the capture of the state, the political representation of the party, the centrality of the proletariat, or the leadership of the vanguard. Rather, given the failure of such ...

Dark Deleuze / Sound & Vortrag

“Der Dunkle Deleuze hat einiges mit dem Schwarzen Laruelle gemein. Es geht darum aus der Perspektive des Schwarzen zu denken, das die Farbe in der letzten Instanz determiniert, jedoch nicht limitiert. Blackness befindet sich jenseits der Ontologie, sie ist keine Absenz des Weißen, keine Negation der Farbe oder einfach nur ...

The aim of this essay is to interrogate the relationship between Deleuze’s concepts of Idea, creativity, and control societies, alongside its interpretation by Paul Patton and Godard’s efficacy at giving these concepts their proper audio-visual form in cinema. By means of Godard’s Alphaville, we will demonstrate how Deleuze’s understanding ...

To be more precise, science fiction is neither forward-looking nor utopian.  Rather, in William Gibson’s phrase, science fiction is a means through  which to preprogram the present […] Science fiction operates through  the power of falsification, the drive to rewrite reality, and the will to  deny plausibility, while the ...
