The Ultimate Kernel of Deleuze’s Ontological Proposition: Univocity of Being

With Deleuze the Cartesian mind-body dualism has been replaced by body-language dualism. Without being too insistent about it at this initial stage I would like to hint at where the relationship between these dualisms is heading. I propose, therefore, what Deleuze has already pointed out, namely a new possibility of investigating the nature of dialectics... Continue Reading →

Desert Islands – Gilles Deleuze

Geographers say there are two kinds of islands. This is valuable information for the imagination because it confirms what the imagination already knew. Nor is it the only case where science makes mythology more concrete, and mythology makes science more vivid. Continental islands are accidental, derived islands. They are separated from a continent, born of... Continue Reading →

Gilles Deleuze’s Postscript on the Societies of Control (Video)

 "Could it be that Deleuze's most lasting legacy will lie in his "Postscript on Control Societies," a mere 2,300 word essay from 1990? Such a strange little text, it bears not the same Deleuzean voice so familiar from his other writings. Cynics will grumble it falls short of the great books of '68-'69 or the... Continue Reading →

The Three Modalities of Immanent Infinity: Life, Matter and Thought in Henry, Deleuze and Badiou

| Download PDF | Click Here to Listen | Recommended Voice: Amy (English – GB) Abstract In this essay I attempt to explicate the sense in which Michel Henry’s reductive phenomenology rendering Life as affectivity resonates with Alain Badiou’s subtractive ontology rendering the subject as eternity in time. I claim that these two modes of subjectivity are... Continue Reading →

Being, Non-Being and Becoming Non-Identical of the Subject as ∅

If the one is not, nothing is. ~ Parmenides In a recent article citing my Postnihilistic Speculations on That Which Is Not: A Thought-World According to an Ontology of Non-Being, the giant of philosophical blogosphere and my fellow para-academic colleague S.C. Hickman has succintly outlined the roots of contemporary ontology. Drawing upon Parmenides, Plato, Meillassoux, Žižek and... Continue Reading →

A letter from Badiou to Deleuze on Heidegger (July 1994)

I would like to resume, today, the parallel between you and Heidegger that I was sketching in my last letter. 1) A crucial difference seems to count against the comparison. In your work there is no “historial” set up, of the type “history of the forgetting of being”, “decline”, etc. As you say, you are... Continue Reading →
