Assemblage Theory, Complexity and Contentious Politics: The Political Ontology of Gilles Deleuze (Nick Srnicek)

The still ambiguous fate of the nation-state and theincreasingly obvious failings of advanced democracies have all furthered the sense thatthe future must bring something different –without, however, any obvious alternativesbeing available. Moreover, the rise of technology, and the speed of communication andinteraction have all made the rapid dynamism and change of our world increasinglydifficult to ignore. The proliferation of identities and collective movements, the tendencytowards non-state movements (whether at a global or local level), and the Westernworld’s recognition of Otherness and alterity have, in turn, made any notion of ahomogeneous people impossible to sustain.

Gilles Deleuze's Difference and Repetition. Gilles Deleuze’s Difference and Repetition Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was a French philosopher, literary critic, art critic, and film critic.

Gilles Deleuze's Difference and Repetition

He was born in Paris, and was educated at the Lycée Carnot and at the Sorbonne. He taught philosophy at the Sorbonne, at the University of Lyon (1964-69), and at the University of Paris VIII-Vincennes (1969-87). At Vincennes, he met the psychoanalyst Félix Guattari (1930-92), with whom he co-authored Capitalisme et Schizophrenie (1972, Capitalism and Schizophrenia: Volume I: Anti-Oedipus; Volume 2: A Thousand Plateaus) and Qu'est-ce que la philosophie? (1991, What is Philosophy?). Difference and Repetition explains how a philosophy of difference may enable difference to become an affirmative concept.

Pure difference may be reflected by complex repetition, because both difference and repetition may be independent of any relation of sameness, similarity, resemblance, or equivalence between events or meanings. Sense may be found in problems. Accueil. Il y aura probablement une vingtaine de nouvelles transcriptions cette année ainsi que des "évènements" auxquels nous n'osons même pas penser aujourd'hui, évènements qui-nous l'espérons- auront pour tâche de nous (re)-plonger dans l'atmosphère des mardi matins qui ont illuminés notre jeunesse des années 1970 à la fin du dernier cours en 1987.


Ce serait un moyen, à nous, d'innover et de créer le réel, de participer à une pluralité de mondes constitués de singularités et d'évènements. La Pensée-Deleuze est aussi cet acte de résistance.
