This chapter examines the metaphysics and semiotics of Deleuze in relation to the formal structures of category theory. It begins by situating Deleuze’s thought relative to the Erlangen Program in geometry and considering the role of the concepts of topological singularity and the Kantian schematism in Deleuze’s thought. It then turns to Deleuze’s reading of Spinoza and his triadic interpretation of the Ethics in terms of the notion of expression. This concept is linked to Deleuze’s work in Logic of Sense and developed as an ethics of signs that is applicable to the philosophical tradition as such, independently of any reference to individual subjectivity.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Erlangen Program, Benedict Spinoza, Topology, Expression, Semiotics, Subjectivity
