The Philosopher as a Line: A Deleuzian Perspective on Drawing and ahe Mobile Image of Thought

Janae Sholtz

What is important for Deleuze about images, whether a painting, drawing, or any other form of artwork, is not that they are visual representations, but instead that they make visible, a point inspired by the art theory of Paul Klee, to which he often refers. The question is, what is it that they make visible? To address it, I will follow a rather circuitous path, taking my own line of tho...
