Deleuze and the Body

Anna Cutler

Iain MacKenzie

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter analyses the relation between philosophy and neuroscience. It explains that both neuroscience and philosophy have helpfully complicated the relation between the body and the world, and suggests that in order to avoid reinstating knowledge of the body as a constitutive moment of subjectivity and reinstalling the knowing subject upon the throne of the world, it is necessary to develop a pedagogy of the concept. The chapter contends that bodies and bodies of knowledge come together in a process of mutual genesis.

Keywords:   philosophy, neuroscience, body, world, subjectivity, bodies of knowledge, mutual genesis
