First of all, let me say thanks again to the people who replied
to my schizo-scholasticism query. I'm hoping, now, that I may
be able to tap into your knowledge on another issue. In one of
Deleuze's Spinoza seminars (2/17/81) he discusses the concept
of limit : "The limit of something is the limit of its action and not the
of its figure." ... A "thing has no other limit than the limit of its power
[puissance] or its action."
I have a few questions, which I hope people can help me with.
First, can anyone refer me to where Deleuze takes up the question
of limit and thus finitude vis-a-vis action? Second, and perhaps
even more interesting to me, is anyone aware of Deleuze discussing
the question of limit/finitude as it works in Heidegger's philosophy?
I am especially interested in anything Deleuze may have had to say
about death as it operates in Heidegger's philosophy. Finally, I am also
interested in texts by anyone that discusses the parallels and differences
between Deleuze and Heidegger. Know of any?
With much appreciation,
