Events, Becoming and History

Events, Becoming and History

(p.33) Chapter 1 Events, Becoming and History
Deleuze and History
Jeffrey A. Bell, Claire Colebrook
Edinburgh University Press

This chapter explores how to read Gilles Deleuze's texts in relation to one another and in relation to the problems and concepts they appear to share. The Logic of Sense presents one of the most detailed accounts of the incorporeal realm of becoming and the pure event to be found anywhere in Deleuze. In Difference and Repetition, The Logic of Sense and What is Philosophy?, Deleuze cites the same passage from Charles Péguy's Clio. In the first two texts, the passage is used to support the idea that there are two levels or dimensions of time. What is Philosophy? refers to the same passage in support of a different thesis. Deleuze and Félix Guattari's conception of history depends on the outline according to which virtual movements find expression in actual historical processes. They developed concepts that express the virtual dynamics of historical and other kinds of event.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Difference and Repetition, The Logic of Sense, What is Philosophy, Charles Péguy, Clio, time, history, event
