You have some really great comments on both Eastern and Western philosophy, which is rare

Jared said... Hey! It's nice to see someone else talking about Deleuze's non-coauthored work. You write, "As a result of this understanding of language, we then find ourselves at an impasse when trying to explain or envision how change might be produced." But I point out that to "differentially determine" is to generate change.
I have not yet gotten to my study of Logic of Sense, but in Difference and Repetition Deleuze presses that change is only producible when difference is concerned. The impasse is how change cannot be produced, in the same way that the impasse of Anti-Oedipus is how the sliding consciousness of schizophrenia cannot be present in "healthy" subjects. The corollary and the object of many of Deleuze's polemics is that when such slippage and when difference is suppressed in order to more closely cordon off the "real", then fascistic and dogmatic thought takes control and introduces problems of stagnation.
I'm glad I found your site; it looks like you have some really great comments on both Eastern and Western philosophy, which is rare. 17 June, 2007 8:21:00 PM IST
