Deleuze and Philosophy

Claire Colebrook

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the role of Henri Bergson and Edmund Husserl in the development of Gilles Deleuze's concept of Superfold about the meaning of life. It explains that Superfold describes the ways in which life is composed of different styles or combinations, an unlimited finity, finitudes or distinct combinations that are not united by a single vital current. It discusses the belief of Bergson and Husserl that life in its constituted forms can be traced back to a horizon which then explains the condition of meaning and analyses Deleuze's refusal to remain within the constituted planes or spaces of knowledge and his imperative to think the plane of immanence.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Superfold, Henri Bergson, Edmund Husserl, meaning of life, constituted planes, plane of immanence
