The Deleuze Connections (The MIT Press): John Rajchman: : Books
This book is a map of the work of Gilles Deleuze–the man Michel Foucault would call the “only real philosophical intelligence in France. For Deleuze’s philosophy is meant to go off in many directions at once, opening delruze zones of unforeseen connections between disciplines. Rajchman isolates the logic at the heart of Deleuze’s philosophy and the “image of thought” that it supposes. He then works out its implications for social and cultural thought, as well as for art and design–for how to do critical theory today.
In this way he clarifies the aims and assumptions of a philosophy that looks constantly to invent new ways to affirm the “free differences” and the “complex repetitions” in the histories and spaces in which we find ourselves.
He looks at the particular realism and empiricism that deoeuze affirmation implies and how they might be used to diagnose new forces confronting us today. In the process, he explores the many connections that Deleuze himself constructs in working out his philosophy, with the arts, racjhman movements, even the neurosciences and artificial intelligence.

The Deleuze Connections
When Rajchman uses a piece of Deleuzean terminology without explaining it, he’s using a milder form of the obnoxious rhetorical strategy that Deleuze himself employed, but it’s far more readable in this context.
It’s been a long, long time since I was 21 or so and read a great many of the works of Gilles Deleuze and was amazed. Now that I’m revisiting Deleuze’s ideas a bit more sobe I should start by saying that, as far as I can tell, Rajchman gives an excellent explication of Deleuze’s theories. Now that I’m revisiting Deleuze’s ideas a bit more sober, a bit more adult, and while I find them no less provocative, I’m more and more aware that they are an untenable basis for any real program of political or social change.
Now, Deleuze may have argued that his ideas should stand on their own merit, without any intent towards changing the world. If that’s the case, then, why does he always get lumped in with the world of French militant philosophy? They’re still brilliant ideas, but they fail to form a basis for a systematic “practical philosophy” that Deleuze was so insistent on moving towards.
