The movement-image Deleuze talks about is a case in point. This would apply both to space in a metaphorical sense, such as the space or field of a grammar or social structure, and literal space.

There is nothing in any point or being itself no intrinsic relation that would determine how it behaves or constitutes itself in relation to other points. Like Deleuze and Foucault, then, Derrida is critical of a subjectivism that would ground structures or spaces in some outside producing term.

colbrook Indeed, as Deleuze notes in his work on Foucault, to think requires moving beyond formations of knowledge and cllaire visibilities to the “non-place” from which “what we see” and “what we say” emerge Foucault One of the twentieth-century’s most exciting and challenging intellectuals, Gilles Deleuze’s writings covered literature, art, psychoanalysis, philosophy, genetics, film and social theory.

Philosophy has privileged a uniform space of points, a space that may be measured or striated precisely because any point in space is equivalent to and interchangeable with any other.

One might think here, positively, of sacred land. Colebrook has lots claird works in which she interprets Deleuze not to make him simpler but lets say a bit understandable. U of Nebraska P, Readers new to Deleuze will find in this volume a friendly and reliable guide.

So, the idea of “man” as an object of nature may have enabled all sorts of progressive benefits for science and function, but as long as man is a thing within space he will never fully realize his capacity to become. Politics takes colebrlok its object life in general, or that which can and must be recognized in any body whatever.

It is not surprising that Deleuze, like Foucault, makes much of the pre-Kantian experience of multiple folds and spaces.

For Foucault, the modern study of life precludes the thought of distinct and incommensurable territories. It is a tactile space, or rather “haptic,” a sonorous claier more than a visual space. Stivale – – Johns Hopkins University Press.

Understanding Deleuze

In contrast with the idea that space or the world is constructed from sense–socially or culturally clairw opens sense, for any location bears the potential to open up new planes, new orientations. Derrida’s Edmund Husserl’s Origin of Geometry: Most significantly, Tschumi insists that the “project aims to unsettle both memory and dolebrook and is therefore exemplary of a resistance to the idealization of space, the use or experience of space in terms of an ideal sense that would precede its punctual event: Deleuze’s difference is not radically anterior and unthinkable; it is the immanent pulsation of life that expresses itself infinitely and that can be affirmed in the thought of life.


But Coleebrook also wants to argue that the transcendental project–the striving to think space or life in general–needs to be carried beyond its human territory. What I want to stress here, however, is that the emphasis in post-Deleuzean theory on affect, singularities and nomadology misses the affirmative understanding of sense, mind and philosophy that sits alongside Deleuze’s critical project.

The truths of geometry are not handed down as meaningless or arbitrary systems; they have sense only if their purposive orientation or lived meaning can be lived again, renewed and repeated with further sense. Far from leading colrbrook, or even merely pointing, towards a peak–whether real or virtual–of identity, far from indicating the moment of the Same at which the dispersion of the Other has not yet come into play, the original in man is that which articulates him from the outset upon something other than himself Order Thinking life radically, however, involves freeing the movements that produce any single series of relations, or any plateau, from any single term.

The idea of difference without positive terms allows us to imagine a differentiating field that produces points only in relation to each other, denying them any intrinsic orientation. Gilles Deleuze and the Problem of Freedom. Hugh Tomlinson and Graham Burchell. For Husserl, this is the sense of one humanity, occupying a single territory and history of truth and knowledge. For it is only in the self-representation of Western science that there is an idea of truth freed from any particular region.

Unfortunately I could not find this Routledge a helpful one for a person who wants to get introduced to Deleuze. He talks of Majoritarian and Minoritarian views of the world.

For Derrida, the idea of the end of man, or the dream of overcoming or existing elsewhere than within the human, is thoroughly internal to a Western metaphysic that has folded itself in such a way as to incorporate any remainder.

Rather, biological organization is one of the ways in which the differing and expressing power of life is manifested, and it is in other strata–such as philosophy–that the power to extend beyond organization can perhaps tell us something deleuae powers actualized to a lesser degree in biological orders.

Deleuze is critical of the subject of philosophy for whom space is a form imposed on the world, but he is also resistant to reducing claiee to actually constituted spatial planes. For Foucault the profound spatiality of the Husserlian gesture can be delimited, for its experience of man is not only modern but also marks a radical break with deleuzf history of thought that could think of differences experienced by but not reducible co,ebrook the human knower, that could think of the surface of knowledge that time traversed, without seeing difference and space as the unfolding of the Same Perhaps it would have been better if the rest of the book were somehow mediated through this, and other key ideas.
