This chapter focuses on confrontation between the state of precariousness at the level of being and thought in Gilles Deleuze's vitalist ontology of the continuum and that of Alan Badiou's ontology of the multiple. It show how a philosophy based on the continuity between being and thought and a philosophy settling for the disjunction between thought and being situate precariousness according to different coordinates. It highlights the opposition between the image of thought enveloped inside being and a thought torn off the ontological inconsistency.

Keywords:   precariousness, being, thought, Gilles Deleuze, Alan Badiou, ontology of the continuum, ontology of the multiple, ontological inconsistency
