Deleuze’s Aesthetics Contra Object Oriented Philosophy

Daniel Fineman

Studies that discuss Deleuze’s aesthetics rely upon Kant. Such reliance by brilliant and insightful scholars such as Smith, O’Sullivan, and Shiviro are nervously self-conscious because they necessarily recognise Deleuze’s explicit repudiation of Kant (his “enemy”). They take exculpatory solace in Deleuze’s obvious admiration for Kant’s skill and scope.They see incipient harmony in so...

Deleuze’s Aesthetics: Transcendental Empiricism, Philosophy of Nature and Philosophy of Spirit

Catarina Pombo Nabais

My incipient attempt deals with Japanese novel The Woman in the Dunes (1962) by Abe Kobo and the film of the same title on which he collaborated (1964). (Abe was a friend of Guat...

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...
