I consider Alain Badiou’s Deleuze — the Clamour of Being to be one of the highlights of this third category — a sentiment that I seem to share. On Alain Badiou’s Manifesto for Philosophy, Deleuze: The Clamor of Being, and Ethics. The Rights of Simulacra: Deleuze and the Univocity of Being. Deleuze: The Clamor of being is one of the strongest readings of Deleuze that exists, and Badiou does an incredible job of synthesizing and presenting an.

Review: Badiou’s “Deleuze: The Clamor of Being”

Deleuze was the first to properly grasp that a contemporary metaphysics must consist in a theory of multiplicities and an embrace of singularities. Badiou will allow that for BD, one must, as in the work of Kierkegaard, choose to be chosen, accept the terrifying responsibility of thought that the One offers some beings.

Influenced by Plato, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Jacques Lacan and Gilles Deleuze, he is an outspoken critic of both the analytic as well as the postmodern schools of thoughts. A new ‘personnage conceptuel’: What does this tell us about the reason for the profound opposition of Badiou toward Deleuze? The fold is the act of thought tracing the fault lines between visibilities and statements, actuality and virtuality, and discovering the hidden connection, the univocity of truth.

Which is equal to saying, perhaps, it will be Mallarmean and Cantorian at the same time, and also radically Platonic arguably in the skeptical vein, insofar as skepsis is inquirymoreover Lacanian Badiou’s treatment of love being informed by Plato and Lacan’s analytic of desire.

Badiou compellingly redefines “Deleuzian, ” throwing down the gauntle The works of Gilles Deleuze — on cinema, literature, painting, and philosophy — have made him one of the most widely read thinkers of his generation.

From Badjou to Disjunction in a World of Simulacra: Helena Velho baviou it really liked it Aug 21, His “anti-quantitative reading of the calculus” p. Dec 27, Joseph rated it liked it. By understanding Deleuzian formalism as being a kind of monad, a form that carries with it seeds of content, Badiou would read Deleuze as necessarily needing a One in order to meld a common domain.

In the comments below, I understand ontology to be the study of what exists.


This book thus manages to produce a sharp philosophical reading of Deleuze, keeping at distance both the clumsiness of post-modernist guardians of Deleuze’s temple, and the irrelevance of studies conducted from the perspective of the history of ideas. Through the dlamor that is thought, the disjunction becomes a modality of oneness. Badiou takes formalism to be standi I’ve read this book three times. Alain Badiou European Graduate School.

That is to say that for BD being occurs the same way in all of its manifestations. Here is how it works: There are no discussion topics on this book yet. It simply is, and it is everything. I think it takes what he can to make an argument against Deleuze without really absorbing veing is most fascinating and interesting about his work, which is really about ambiguity and intuitive contradictions a totally post-Kantian move.

Badiou goes very far in grasping and concisely stating Deleuze’s words and thoughts.

Deleuze: The Clamor of Being by Alain Badiou

The Strange Temporality of the Subject: As long as I’ve been reading post-structuralism, I have pursued an clqmor of Deleuze’s work. Alain Badiou Translated by Louise Burchill. This is very strange as he has based most of his critique of Deleuze on the notion that he is an unintentional Platonist.

Truth, indeed, is commencement- the Event, which establishes a new world that cannot yet be described, and which reveals to the subject new possibilities.

And so it is with eternal returns; that each return is a return of pure difference. In fact, it could happen that the reader, although she tends to disregard all unimportant, consensual or commonsensical texts, still senses the urge to engage in a battle against some such books, because they are used as means of homogenizing thought, as agents of the dissolution of thought into an harmless circulation of opinions. In other words, it manages to give, as Badiou does, a philosophical account of Deleuze’s thought, but without sacrificing — as allegedly Badiou does — the textual evidence and the structural coherence of Deleuze’s work on the altar of opposition.

University of Minnesota Press Coming soon. Badiou openly does deleuuze so as to show that Deleuze, whether he knows it or not, is a problematic, if not utterly failing, neo-idealist. Thus, for Deleuze, such a “return” may not mean entirely different worlds, it does beinng different slices folds that can interact but also may be varying degrees of incompossible with each other in terms of immanence, even as some interact, colliding and recoding one another.


Or again, one should mention his account of Deleuze’s engagement with Kant’s doctrine of faculties, which allows Roffe to formulate an insightful reading of Kant’s distinction between reason and understanding as a basis upon which Deleuze can formulate his notion of “the problematic” pp. Here is how it works:. One can call the books in the first feleuze ‘objects’ as they are fundamentally inert, having no or very low subjective capacity to change the presentand the books in the second category ‘enemies’ as they rhe used to transform a field of thought into a field of immobile, dead objects, useful only to the analytical gaze of an historian of ideas.

In eeleuze words, the problem raised by Badiou remains intact — and unaddressed — through Roffe’s book: Badiou will argue that Deleuze consistently uses calmor of names, although he tries to hide this both from himself baciou his readers by presenting his terminology as a set of binaries rather than double-names. It neing constantly being reinterpreted and thus rewritten, transformed into something different.

Jan 26, Alex Yang rated it it was amazing Shelves: Badiou’s heavy critical artillery — namely his choice to attack Deleuze with an accusation that he cannot easily substantiate by textual evidence — is due to the fact that Deleuze’s expressive paradigm represents bdiou serious threat to his own philosophical agenda. The consequence is that Deleuze’s “attempt to subvert the ‘vertical’ transcendence bsing the One” through the concept of the virtual “produces a ‘horizontal’ or virtual transcendence which, instead of grasping singularity, ignores the intrinsic resource of the multiple and presupposes the chaotic power of the One” ibid.

Through a deep philosophical dlamor with his writings, Badiou contends that Deleuze is not the Dionysian thinker of becoming he took himself to be; on the contrary, he is an ascetic philosopher of Being and Oneness. Ilona rated it really liked it Mar 19,
