Example text

Un libre et sauvage création de concepts’ (Paris: Seuil, 2002), 307–8. Whereas Deleuze and Guattari transform into a weapon against every ‘philosophy of the subject that is called upon to accept its finitude’ the schizophrenic, with his ignorance of disjunctions, exclusions, and renunciations imposed by logical alternatives that cannot be transcended, Whitehead, who intends not to fight against anything, to accept and to ‘save’ everything, endeavors to ignore effectively disjunctions, exclusions and dramatic alternatives.

This tendency to devalue appears at first to prevail even in Difference and Repetition—a work already ‘in color’ (in contrast with the philosophical portraits in monochrome ‘potato-brown’), and which, more importantly, deploys the category of the future: repetition. Yet not until we reach the prodigious pages of the third repetition do we encounter, indeed, experience, a future powerful enough to overturn the past, including this tendency to dispense with the future. In the first repetition by the passive synthesis of habit, the future is once again apprehended—and its futurity instantly effaced—as a dimension or element of the present (DR, 71, 81), on the one hand, and on the other hand, in its reflected state, as that which announces itself—as expectation, anticipation, prediction or need—in the present.
