Excellently translated and insightful– as though one were listening to Deleuze with an acquaintance speaking of the direction of his theory in the 80’s.

There is no subject of enunciation either. Virtual wars constantly renew themselves by emitting others which can then react on the actual. It is difficult to think of the event, and ‘Scarcely anyone other than the Stoics and the English have thought in this way’ 66and the example here is HP Lovecraft and the story of Carter being drawn towards the thing he finds on the far side of the moon. It is more or dialgoues exactly what Bourdieu says]. A style is an assemblage of enunciation. Each actual is surrounded by a ‘cloud of virtual images, a ‘series of extensive coexisting circuits’.

It can help to localise affect, say in persons, in the face of overwhelming processes of desire. Even the simplest one can affect their world, as when spiders build webs.

To consider language on its own is the wrong sort of abstraction, and this goes for considering writing on its own. An encounter with Foucault is also an encounter with sounds, gestures, ideas, attention, laughter and smiles [then some sentimental shit about his other friends] We can see pluralism at work here. Dialogjes societies of control, what is control for exactly? As examples of possible regimes, one might be particularly dominated by a centre, and here, signs refer back to signs in each circle, and the whole of them refer back to the centre of signifiance.


Pranet is a particular danger that the line traced by war machines will paarnet in abolition and dialogkes as above.

This article about a philosophy -related book is a stub. Dialogues affirms how a new type of revolution is about to become possible. The terms have been swapped over, the symbolic, the law of the signifier, castration, but nothing else has changed in the role of psychoanalyst as priest [Lacan himself is exonerated to some extent].

This geographic conception of relations is about why things actually are, which in history of philosophy is always based on the verb to be and the quest for principles. Sartre, however provided a breath of fresh air from the outside.

You can encounter anything and anyone, not as individuals and persons, but as effects. This article does not cite any sources. Recapture joy and energy. Here we find, not subjects but haecceities [Deleuze offers his own explanations in the third person, in a note, But even this abstract machine is ;arnet and fallible. Chapter two On the Superiority of Anglo — American Literature I Literature is about escape, flight or deterritorialization, and the French have not understood that this is not just running away, avoiding commitments, but something active.

They inhabit the dark and agitated world with mixtures of bodies interacting with each other, penetrating each other. The actual object is indistinguishable from the virtual, ‘becomes itself virtual’ and this is the totality, ‘total impetus’ of the object.

This is why there is no strongly established specialised English philosophy, since dialogued reveal the vision best [with quotes from Miller and Woolf, page 30]. They all show the regime of signs with the same components—an abstract machine and an actual assemblage, such as a machine of subjectivation, and assemblages which realize it. The notes by the translators are interesting. There are only particles interacting, not forms arising from a structure, a genesis, or a human subject.


Would you like to tell us about a lower price? This is a process of joy, not lack. The war machine follows lines of flight [the example is Genghis Khan!

This can relate to all children and to all adults in their every day life. Once clarified, what this seems to amount to is that French philosophers like saying what something definitely is, so that A is B, whereas English philosophers can see multiplicities more clearly by saying A and B. Virtual here means that they are connected instantaneously, that they are emitted and absorbed created and destroyed in an instant: It is traversed by lines of becoming, non parallel evolutions, connections between heterogeneous beings.

There is a relation with the state. This makes psychoanalysis now entirely internally self referring, so the analysis itself must become true, whether or not there is an actual cure. Others are claiming authority as enunciators as well.

Like all creative things and people, he is in the middle, he grows idalogues the middle. Yet thought is not binary or dichotomous, but multicentred, a multiplicity. Power operates only on parts of assemblages, but this is not a dualism but another dimension [I see herds of weasels coming this way].
