Κυκλοφόρησε πρόσφατα η «διπλή» βιογραφία Gilles Deleuze et Félix Guattari: biographie croisée του François Dosse και οφείλω να ομολογήσω ότι η προσέγγιση του συγγραφέα είναι αρκούντως ασεβής (και γι’αυτό Ντελεζιανή)- περισσότερα εν ευθέτω χρόνω. Εν τω μεταξύ, ορίστε ακόμη μια ανακοίνωση συνεδρίου για τον Ντελέζ:
What is Philosophy after Deleuze?
University of Dundee
11-12th April 2008
Professor James Williams (Dundee)
Dr Ray Brassier (Middlesex)
This conference will follow two strands; both departing from the presupposition that Deleuze’s work has become an orthodox point of reference for contemporary philosophy. The first strand will look for papers that, though sympathetic to Deleuze, move beyond exegesis and engage critically with his work. The second strand will posit the emergence of questions that exceed both the remits and capacities of Deleuze’s philosophy. Themes we hope to explore include:
• What can an application of Deleuzian philosophy actually achieve
• The status of ethico-political questions for philosophy in the wake of Deleuze
• A balanced assessment of Deleuze’s other worldly, or ascetic, character
• The role of the event, subjectivity and freedom in contemporary philosophy
• The fetish for novelty as the predominant criterion of significant thought
• The ontological status of difference for philosophy
• The structuring of situations and the logic of appearance
We are interested in the emergence of a post-Deleuzian philosophical climate. Figures we take to contribute to this climate include: Badiou, Laruelle, Rancière, Agamben, Žižek, Peter Hallward, Quentin Meillassoux. We seek papers that develop the understanding of these themes and figures at the forefront of contemporary philosophy.
