(p.1) Introduction
The Universal (In the Realm of the Sensible)

Dorothea Olkowski

Edinburgh University Press

This introductory chapter explains the theme of this book, which is about universal philosophy. The book proposes a critique of the limits of the particular formalist, mathematical structure used by Gilles Deleuze and the manifold of continuous space–time of dynamical systems theory. It proposes a methodology and an ontology oriented in relation to formal, mathematical structures, but able to be coherently and consistently asserted apart from them in terms of what is called sensibility. The book also recommends a rethink of the concept of time–space relations espoused by several philosophers, including Luce Irigaray, Henri Bergson, and Maurice Merleau-Ponty.

Keywords:   universal philosophy, continuous time–space, dynamical systems theory, Gilles Deleuze, sensibility, time–space relations, Luce Irigaray, Henri Bergson, Maurice Merleau-Ponty
