Michel Foucault’s advice that this century might turn into referred to as “Deleuzian” used to be thought of by means of Gilles Deleuze himself to be a shaggy dog story “meant to make those who like us chuckle, and make every person else livid.” no matter if critical or no longer, Foucault’s prediction has had sufficient of an effect to elevate challenge in regards to the strength “deification” of this drastically influential French thinker. trying to counter such trends towards hagiography—not unknown, quite when you consider that Deleuze’s death—Ian Buchanan has assembled a set of essays that represent a severe and targeted engagement with Deleuze and his work.

Example text

Still, the dualism we have been looking at here-Nomads against the State-is a very late theme of this book, emerging only after sorne 400 pages on other matters (less dualistic those and impossible to sumrnarize, let alone to examine, here). Much of this rnaterial turns on the various forms of reterritorialization provoked by the capitalist axiomatic, and, after a long doctrinal opening about the central Hjelmslev linguistic system on which the book is based, takes the form of various accounts of the production of intensities, the capacity of the properties of phenomena to know transforrnation, and so forth; intensities and transformations are indeed sornething like that "foreign language" within our own language which mysteriously passes across the surface (like a minority, like a war machine) and then disappears again.

This absolute memory is the "real narne" of the affection of self by self. Time is the form through which the mind [l'esprit] affects itself, while space is the form through which the mind is affected by something else. Time as subjectivation, division of the temporal 1 frorn the spatial self, is Memory in this absolute sense: a splitting of tirne where Memory "doubles the present and the outside and is one with forgetting, since it is endlessly forgotten and reconstituted. . " 14 Therefore, to think is not to recall or reconsider the past, but rather to invent the future.

The goal of the direct tirne-image and other forms of art, whether successful or not, is to awaken these powers in us. To become-other we need an irnage to wake the other in us as what yet remains unthought. (That difference returns and so unfolds identity, Deleuze argues, is pres~nted throughout Foucault's work by the the me of the double. The double is not a projected interior, but rather an interiorization of the outside; not a redoubling of the One but of the Other, as a folding of the unthought within the subject.
