Becoming and Time in the Philosophy of Gilles Deleuze by Samantha E. Bankston

By Samantha E. Bankston

This dissertation interrogates the idea that of changing into because it operates in an ontological
system of immanence. Our venture is to enquire changing into by itself phrases. we've got
chosen Gilles Deleuze because the thinker of turning into par excellence, who asks how
becoming results the mounted buildings of representational inspiration. regardless of being the
driving strength of Deleuze?s philosophical venture, he by no means officially systematized his
concept of turning into. Reconstructing the conceptual background of turning into in Deleuze?s
philosophy permits us to caricature a differential, immanent ontology and its temporal and
causal strategies. From the outset, we find that Bergonian length and Nietzschean
eternal go back are re-appropriated in Deleuze?s proposal of changing into. opposite to his
critics, Deleuze doesn't evince dualist ontology. Remapping the temporal strains which
inform the process his writings, we find that Deleuze?s ontology is tripartite.
Absolute changing into, sensory changing into, and effectuated being give you the panorama
through which natural distinction is produced. Staging conceptual encounters among
Bergson, Nietzsche, Leibniz, Borges, Klossowski, and Proust permits us to formulate an
explicit idea of changing into from their implicit temporalities in Deleuze?s philosophy. In
the finish, we observe the recent thought of changing into to Deleuze?s works, demonstrating that
his canon dramatizes the immanent ontology he theorizes.

Merleau-Ponty : une ontologie de l’imaginaire

• Etude précise de l. a. notion merleau-pontyenne de l’imaginaire, de ses grandes lignes thématiques et de son évolution au fil des œuvres
• Mise en valeur du rôle clef joué par los angeles inspiration d’imaginaire dans l’ontologie de Merleau-Ponty
• Mise en valeur du lien entre l. a. notion merleau-pontyenne de l’imaginaire et, d’une half, son esthétique et, d’autre half, sa philosophie morale et politique.

Cette étude a pour objet l. a. belief merleau-pontyenne de l’imaginaire et l. a. manière dont elle conduit à repenser radicalement le réel dans sa totalité et, finalement, à imposer une ontologie dont l’imaginaire est le principe même, « l’institution de l’Etre ».

L’imaginaire est une suggestion clef de l. a. philosophie de Merleau-Ponty, à half égale avec l. a. notion dont il se révèle être l’envers indissociable, los angeles half d’ambiguïté originaire. Parce qu’il s’intéresse d’abord à l. a. capacité que l’imaginaire détient de concurrencer voire de dépasser le perçu, Merleau-Ponty montre qu’il y a entre eux une homogénéité renvoyant à un fond commun qu’il qualifie de « mythique » et d’« onirique ». los angeles réflexion merleau-pontyenne élabore ainsi une définition originale et révolutionnaire de l’imaginaire comme possédant une véritable chair et comme lieu de présence décuplée des choses mêmes. S’ensuit alors l. a. nécessité d’élargir l. a. inspiration de réalité en reconnaissant los angeles measurement et l. a. « texture » imaginaires du réel. Ainsi apparaît une query qui constitue l’un des principaux axes directeurs de l. a. réflexion merleau-pontyenne : quelle authenticité peut-elle encore être instituée au sein d’une life dont l. a. nature est apparentée à celle des songes et de l. a. comédie, et lors même que l’être des choses et des personnes n’est aucunement l’en-soi, mais, bien plutôt, l’ubiquité des ombres et des reflets ? L’un des enseignements remarquables que nous transmet Merleau-Ponty définit ainsi l. a. manière dont « l’imagination peut sauver de l’imagination ».

This learn focuses upon Merleau-Ponty’s perception of the imaginary and intends to teach how his philosophy ends up in appreciably reconsider the entire truth and, finally, to set up an ontology whose very precept is the imaginary that Merleau-Ponty additionally defines as “the establishment of the Being”.

The imaginary is a key idea in Merleau-Ponty’s philosophy, on a par with belief, because the former proves to be the opposite part of the latter, its unique ambiguous half. Merleau-Ponty being essentially attracted to the ability of the imaginary to compete with - certainly to surpass - the perceived, he exhibits that they're homogenous and proportion a typical foundation that he describes as “mythical” and “dreamlike”. hence, in an unique and innovative method, Merleau-Ponty defines the imaginary as having a real flesh and as bringing tenfold elevated presence of the issues themselves. It follows that we've got to amplify the thought of fact via spotting the imaginary measurement and “texture” of the true. This increases a question that's one of many major avenues in Merleau-Ponty’s inspiration: what sort of authenticity can nonetheless be instituted while the character of lifestyles partakes of that of desires and comedy and while the being of items and individuals isn't in the slightest degree the en-soi, yet, as a substitute, the ubiquity of shadows and reflections? certainly one of Merleau-Ponty’s such a lot striking teachings defines the way in which how “imagination can retailer from imagination”

Epicureanism (Ancient Philosophies)

The Epicurean tuition of philosophy was once one of many dominant philosophies of the Hellenistic interval. based through Epicurus of Samos (century 341-270 BCE) it used to be characterised through an empiricist epistemology and a hedonistic ethics. This new advent to Epicurus bargains readers transparent exposition of the principal tenets of Epicurus' philosophy, with specific tension put on these positive aspects that experience enduring philosophical curiosity and the place parallels will be drawn with debates in modern analytic philosophy.

Example text

The memory of becomings is at the sub-representative level, beneath the constituted individuated molar subjects. The individuating process of ontological memory—the memory of becomings—is expressed by Deleuze in terms of Proustian 67 68 This is a clear example of Deleuze and Guattari‟s conflation of the two concepts of becoming. Deleuze and Guattari, A Thousand Plateaus, 324. 50 reminiscence and is a supplemental entrance into Bergson‟s notion of the pure past. ”69 The process of creation that arises from ontological memory is the code breaking logic (or “antilogos”) of sensory becoming whose molecular durations ignite individuation beneath the representation of entities, subjects, and objects.

We have differentiated between becoming (absolute becoming) and becomings (sensory becoming)—the latter owing much of its character to the temporal project of Bergson and the re-appropriation of duration in terms of molecular memory. We have yet to elaborate the history of absolute becoming. The following section explicates absolute becoming in Deleuze from Nietzsche‟s concept of the eternal return. Becoming-Nietzsche It is not a surprise that Deleuze‟s concept of becoming grows out of Nietzschean becoming.

Multiplicities are differential relations that are non-localizable, virtual, coexistent, selfreferential, purposeless, not presupposing identities, and are not discrete. The relationality of multiplicities provides the fabric of substantiality for Deleuze, and it is pre-individual. 75 In this sense, they are like Nietzschean forces, referring to their creative potentials. The affirmation of this force of becoming—multiplicities that are immersed in becoming—grants its innocence. The spatially and temporally undetermined differential relationality of multiplicities is enforced by becoming.
