Bonjour a tou(te)s
Thank you for the discussion about God, discussion falling quickly
(hopefully) into more deterritorialized grounds, such as other and
I have been reading Lyotard lately and I would like to know if some of you
have studied the possible links between him and Deleuze.
In "Discours, figure" he shows that langage is "ebranle" ( which means both
shaken and masturbated in french) by a spatial manifestation which is the
trancendance of the symbol.( very Wittgenstein like in deed, with image
inside of langage and grammar inside of images) Just after he writes
"l'absolument autre serait cette beaute ou la difference" (i.e. the spatial
thing that is an enigma to be seen in langage).
Does it mean that the other ( you have been discussing in these late posts)
is not only an other human being but also any kind of otherness, such as an
"evenement" or event?
(if otherness is not only a person but any event, we get rid of any ethical
approach to God, we, instead need a physical/political approach to
A litle bit farther in the text, "event is manifested nowhere else than
inside of the vacancy which the desire opens". It looks like if event,
other, desire and space do have some relations. In deleuzian langage it
might sound like event, white man "visage", intensity and plane.
I feel there is a deep influence of Lyotard on Deleuze, if only by the way
Lyotard describes the ideal book, and how Deleuze produces "Mille plateaux"
exactly according to Lyotard's requirements. I would like to know if this
influence may extend a bit farther than (only) in the form of the book. ?
in the thinking of "evenement" and plane?
Thank you for your help
et merci pour les poemes et les chats de goutière!
