Sample text

The focus then becomes the relationship between mathematics, as ontology, and philosophy, dealing with ‘events’ – or rather opening and articulating a space for the convergence and recognized compossibility of truth-making events in other discourses (in science, art, politics and love). In contrast, Deleuze places movement at the very heart of things. 9 From such a viewpoint, the incapacity of language to address Being renders ontology neither fundamentally impossible nor beyond philosophy, but signifies the inadequacy of traditional or conventional language for facilitating the proper thought of movement and process (and for allowing thought to realize itself as movement).

If he shares with Badiou a distaste for the One, the Absolute, the Whole, the multiplicities he deploys in opposition to such figures are grounded in a very different ontology from that made possible for Badiou by set theory. Deleuze’s ontology is one in which difference (as opposed to identity) is constitutive, and takes the form of movements rather than things, elements or indeed conceptual operators for distinguishing between elements. Deleuze’s understanding of difference, as most extensively elaborated in Difference and Repetition (Deleuze, 1994), heavily influenced by his early reading of Nietzsche as a philosopher of difference (see Deleuze, 2006)7 and his engagements with Bergson’s philosophy of duration and movement,8 is to be understood not as the product of reflection, but as an integral aspect of existence, a process which ‘makes itself’ (Deleuze, 1994, p.

133). The aptness of deconstruction for addressing a range of sites of the suppression of Otherness is reflected in its influence on a wide range of thinkers concerned first of all with one or other such instance – even if some of these thinkers will also seek to highlight certain limitations of deconstruction along with other philosophical traditions. At the same time, the apparent hegemony of deconstruction, and various other aspects of poststructuralist thought within certain fields – as reflected for example in my discussion of the ‘aporetic’ paradigm above – then becomes an issue.
