|Read Book ⚷ Dialogues ⚢ Gilles Deleuze examines his philosophical pluralism in a series of discussions with Claire Parnet Conversational in tone, this is the most personable and accessible of all Deleuze s writings, in which he describes his own philosophical background, relationsbips and development, and some of the central themes of his work Watched L Ab c daire de Gilles Deleuze, which I am led to believe is the video footage from which this series of dialogues stems from Most odd and brilliant creature, this man My initial impressions marked his apparent oddness, aloofness, and obscurity, but this blossomed into an awareness of his intense joy and lucidity after I becamefamiliar with his work.

with the possible exception of Pure Immanence , it still took me a whole damn month to read 148 pages 148 pages In a month There s a little bit of all of Capitalism and Schizophrenia A Thousand Plateaus in this book But I want to talk about how this work effected me on a personal level, both because that is ultimately what Deleuze wants, and that also, to me, should be the end goal of philosophy to change how we think, which should change how we understand and interact in the world, and maybe, just maybe, change the world.But first you have to know that my interpretation of this is probably wrong, probably off base, because I don t know as much as Deleuze, and a lot of time I m not sure exactly what he s getting at, or sometimes even what he s saying, but that s ok, even according to Deleuze I mean, he wants to get across his ideas, so he tries saying the same thing from tons of different angles, and unlike a lot of philosophers, uses a lot of examples, which includes various movies, lots of literature not just Kafka and Proust, but H.P Lovecraft and Carlos Castanada , BD SM, tattoos, Dylan lyrics, and all kinds of other stuff Ultimately, Deleuze is writing about changing the models we use to understand the world Like many philosophers of the last century, he wants to move away from a metaphysics that believes in intrinsic properties For example, there is no true you, or Capitalism, or red All are collectives That is, you are not the same as you were a few seconds ago, or even a decade ago On one level, all your cells are completely different every ten years your bone cells live the longest, 10 years On another level, you have changed because of your loves significant others, best friends, new passions, favorite books and music and art and movies, etc have changed who you are So he wants us to think of everything not as a discrete object, but as collectives that are still unique, but made up of other parts for example, you are made of cells and past loves and obsessions and your gender race nationality, etc but are still you, but the you ness islike noon From there, he wants us to re think desire Desire is what happens when those discrete bodies which, again, aren t really bodies, but are themselves collections of all kinds of things from cells to passions to ideas to whatever collide So let s say you ve just found, like I ve have, a new favorite author for me it s Thomas Bernhard For me, there s a before Bernhard and an after Bernhard I now think and see the world differently with Bernhard colored glasses But it s not one directional not simply Bernhard texts effecting me I look for others who are fans of Bernhard, push Bernhard on friends I feel will be receptive So I, in my small way, am changing what Bernhard means, by helping to create a Bernhard community consciously or not , and giving that Bernhard community consciously or not my spin on things Deleuze always uses the example of the wasp and the orchid The wasp and the orchid both have their bizarre shapes because they have mutated in tandem they have mutually evolved in their interpenetration of each other.So keep that desire thing, and the thing about everything being collections in mind.Here s a quote Great literature is written in a sort of foreign language Deleuze is one with me in this What we should do, if we re so inclined and sometime even if we re not , is associate ourselves with the minorities in our culture, whatever they might be We do this to break away from the stagnating dominant narrative, and in order to blaze new trails There are dangers in this, obviously One danger in breaking away with the dominant order is that it can lead us to an entanglement with death, suicide, despair, etc Let s call this drive a line of flight So now, to politics Obviously, there are other forces at play than the line of flight There s a force that is about encoding On one simple level, this makes you a citizen of wherever you re from On one good side, this creates stability, on another bad side, it creates mindless zombies who parrot whatever crap is being spouted by Fox News tellingly, I can t think of a left wing equivalent There are other forces which are about flight I don t really understand the difference between the various lines of flight, but the basic shtick is that we, as individuals and as groups of individuals , should go off on these lines and try to create the life we want to live here and now Those little gesture can be important Not to ignore the big gestures, but the way we live our life reflects back Nothing is truly unconnected, and we should remember that We are responsible for our society moving towards a type of fascism or evil, and are equally responsible for our society moving towards something we believe in.There sthan that, and that end part is definitely my spin on the very great last chapter, but, well there you go.Go kick some ass 210617 in this series of edited conversations there is an interesting defence claim of essential empiricism , that seems to me to include the things themselves of phenomenonology basically, this is that thought should start with immediate experience and not abstraction, thought should be basic, not theory, not framework, not grand totalizing concepts of the One or the Subject but some recognition that these are construction or lines of flight great intro
