Deleuze and Guattati meets Atelier Uraiqat! Discover this project inspired by Anti-Oedipus. a conceptual piece based on philosophy.
I'm on maybe the fourth section of A Thousand Plateaus currently, "Postulates of Linguistics" and this one is particularly rough. There was a passage about the synthesizer in this section that I might post here to get thoughts on.Have you read it before? I ended up buying ATP instead because it sounded the more exciting of the two.
Deleuze says we're always in the middle. And so his books always begin mid-conversation. That is, he doesn't even try to frame his conversation as if he could stand outside his own text and let us survey the scene. That's what text books do; they want to be definitive and tell you: this is what is known. But Deleuze operates from the middle, amidst the fray and teem where all there are are assertions, positions, postures — never certainties. And so he just begins wherever he is.
I prefer to read a book from beginning to endI like what Deleuze says about beginning in the middle
My approach to this is to read what you want to read, and just frequently play lectures/podcasts about the other stuff in the background as you do other things, until whenever you get to studying them directly.That was something that put me off philosophy for a long time. The thought that I'd have to slog through everything chronologically in order to get to the stuff I actually wanted to read.
