[Nettime-bold] matheron francois: the deleuze effect

Subject: [multitudes-infos] Info (.D&G List): Deleuze in the "Magazine
litteraire "

As many of you know, Deleuze studies now has a major new work to discover,
the volume edited by David Lapoujade entitled Lle dserte et autres
textes (Minuit), containing texts from Deleuzes first twenty years
(1953-1973), with a second volume to follow. As if to consecrate this
volume, the French literary review Magazine littraire has just published a
special dossier on Deleuze, entitled Leffet Deleuze [the Deleuze
effect]. As a service to the List, I plan to translate key sections of this
dossier over the next few weeks.  CJ Stivale (25 February 2002)

Dossier - Leffet Deleuze [The Deleuze Effect]

Deleuze holds a curious privilege: while reputed to be a difficult
philosopher, his concepts are everywhere. One loses count of the minority
becomings, lines of flight, and other rhizomes that adorn the columns
of journals and magazines, and even in the discourse of publicists and
commercial managers. But who is actually reading Difference and Repetition,
Logic of Sense, or Anti-Oedipus is quite another matter. In What Is
Philosophy?, Deleuze and Guattari had warned against this inevitable
temptation to see concepts everywhere, the ever growing tendency to believe
that they are easy to create. The publication this month of a collection of
articles and presentations by Deleuze (Lle dserte et autres textes,
Editions de Minuit) provide the occasion to verify once again this adage:
it is not enough to shout Long live the multiple or to wield some other
pop concept since the only thing that counts is to make something from
them, impelled by an outside (that might well be a desert island, a
police novel, Alfred Jarry, etc.). But Deleuze did indeed also want to see
philosophys position as a reservoir, from which each person could draw
what he or she wanted, in the same way that works by Spinoza or Nietzsche
grab us like a gust of wind. Deleuze called this gust of wind a rencontre
[encounter]. For a proper name does not designate a subject, but a effect,
a zigzag, something that happens entre deux [between two] as submitting to
a difference of potential. Hence, the idea of examining the Deleuze
effect, the electric shocks that it creates, the encounters that it brings
to life.
