Translation: Véronique Bergen’s Diagram of the Evolution of Deleuzian Concepts

The following is a translation of a section containing a table of the evolutions of the names of the transcendental field and the operators of differenciating liaisons from L’Ontologie de Gilles Deleuze, Véronique Bergen. Paris: L’Harmattan, 2001. 545-549.
Original translation by Taylor Adkins 11/05/07.

Nonsense, empty place, Aion, univocal being, Univocal clamor of Being as difference of difference

Tertiary order of the logical point of view (proposition) and the ontological point of view (individual, person)

Spinoza and the Problem of Expression (1969) and Spinoza: Practical Philosophy (1981)

Substance as cause in and by self, plane of immanence of nature, univocity of Being, Natura naturana

Attributes as common forms

Infinite modes (immediate and mediate) and finite modes, Natura nature

BwO, Numen

Organisms

Plane of consistency, of immanence, becomings, intensities, haecceities, smooth space, “dust of the world,” inorganic life, lines of flight

Abstract machine (phylum and diagram)

Actual agency of effectuation and enunciation, strata, form and substance of content and expression, molar forms

Foucault (1986)

Line from the Outside, informal Work

Forces of power, abstract machine, diagram, strategy

Knowledge (enunciations and visibilities), forms of exteriority, strata, integration, suject as fold of the Outside

Leibniz: the Fold (1988)

Expressed world, inflexion, event

Point of view, fold, invagination, position

Inclusion, expression, monads, bodies

What Is Philosophy? (1991)

Plane of immanence (Physis and Nous), One-All

Conceptual personae as intercessors in philosophy (partial observers in science, aesthetic figures in art

Molar forms, figures and structures

Immanence: a Life (1995)

Plane of immanence, life, impersonal singularities, event, indefiniteness

Forms of object and subject, transcendences, empirical determinations

The outbreak of new problems reorients the disposition of the transcendental, of its “schematizing” dramatization and of its actual deployments:

Bergsonism:

–problem of the apprehension of the problematic

–invention of the concept of intensive multiplicities, continuous versus discrete, metrical multiplicities set in the work of the method of intuition reshaping the transcendental space of Duration.

Difference and Repetition:

–problems of a “complex repetition,” of a “free difference” subtracted from identity, and from the rise of a “genital thought.”

–reorientation of the transcendental site in accordance with the concept of integration/differenciation–in short, of actualization/virtualization–via the method of dramatization.

Logic of Sense:

–problem of a conquest of surfaces as the rise of events, of sense, of thoughts.

–reorientation of the transcendental source in accordance with the concept of the empty case as univocal Being and with a serial method of structuralist obedience.

Spinoza and the Problem of Expression:

–problem of an anti-Cartesian structure treating the question of the relation between the finite and the infinite, between cause and effect, reorienting the question of true, adequate ideas.

–reorientation of the virtual site in accordance with the concept of expression (in its ontological, epistemological and ethico-political modalities) and the synthetic method by causation.

A Thousand Plateaus:

–problems of a typology of lines, forces and spaces composing the real, of the rise of an “automata” thought, and of a micropolitics of art, science, and philosophy as life.

–invention of concepts of planomenon, smooth and striated spaces, war machine/state apparatus, tree/rhizome, semiotic regimes, ritournelles and crystals of time.

Foucault:

–triple problem of enunciations and visibilities of knowledge, of forces of power and of the aesthetic becoming of the self.

–creation of concepts of a schematizing diagram of forces, of subjectivation as fold of the Outside, the death of man.

Movement-Image and Time-Image:

–problem of the apprehension of time in the cinema, passage of the indirect image from a time subjected to movement to the direct image of time subordinating itself to a becoming aberrant movement.

–creation of a typology of signs and images explicating this reversal of time subjected to movement in an autonomous time.

The Fold:

–problems of the emergence of the new, of the event, of the soul/body relation, of the bond between the expressed and expression.

–creation of concepts of the fold carried to the infinite, of incompossibles and divergent series of the neo-baroque.

What Is Philosophy?

–problem of thought arranging itself to chaos.

–invention of the concept of the triple Chaoide, philosophy, art and science, of their planes, agents and operators.

  2. something weird is going on with the layout above using IE7 and vista64 at 1920×1080. I copied the text and pasted into word to read the first section after the table (below):
