La voix d’un cri anonyme. CSO, chair et Subjectivité chez Merleau-Ponty et Deleuze/The voice of an anonymous cry. CSO, flesh and Subjectivity at Merleau-Ponty and Deleuze

Palermo chiara

Strasbourg University, France

Dans son texte dédié à Francis Bacon, La Logique de la sensation, Gilles Deleuze développe une analyse des forces qui agissent, chez le peintre anglais, dans la figuration elle-même, au-delà de la représentation. L’enjeu deleuzien est de conceptualiser l’intensification de la présence de la figure sans représentation, si puissante dans la peinture de Bacon. Pour ce faire, comme le titre de son œuvre le rappelle, il donne un sens inédit à la sensation suivant ainsi l’enseignement de Cézanne : la sensation n’est pas le donné immédiat, mais sa réélaboration dans la corrélation du sujet au monde « comme disent les phénoménologues »[1]. Cependant, dans ce texte « la force des obstacles qui font figure » et la « torsion des formes » qui sont les marques de l’esthétique deleuzienne de la sensation seront utilisées pour une critique systématique de la phénoménologie et notamment d’une notion de la subjectivité propre à Merleau-Ponty. Notre étude a pour objectif d’explorer quelques traits essentiels de cette critique que Deleuze adresse à Merleau-Ponty à la lumière de l’usage que Deleuze fait d’Antonin Artaud et de la notion du corps sans organe. Nous entamons donc une analyse de quelques étapes essentielles de la critique de Deleuze à toute pensée du corps vécu et de la chair. Toutefois, le but de ce travail ne sera pas d’établir les éléments de rupture entre les deux auteurs, mais, au contraire, nous esquissons l’hypothèse qu’il puisse exister une véritable continuité entre Merleau-Ponty et Deleuze, en dépit de leurs éléments de distance. Sur ce point, il sera déterminant de situer la convergence des deux auteurs dans la nécessité d’un renouvellement de la notion de subjectivité convoquée précisément par Deleuze contre la phénoménologie. L'enjeu est ici de fournir de nouvelles clés pour penser autrement les oppositions entre les deux auteurs et, pour ce faire, il faudra expliciter le rôle que la lecture d’ Antonin Artaud a joué dans la pensée de Deleuze et du dernier Merleau-Ponty.

In his text dedicated to Francis Bacon, La Logique de la sensation, Gilles Deleuze develops an analysis of the forces that act, in the English painter, in figuration itself, beyond representation. The Deleuzian challenge is to conceptualize the intensification of the presence of the figure without representation, so powerful in the painting of Bacon. To do this, as the title of his work reminds us, he gives a new meaning to sensation, thus following Cézanne's teaching: sensation is not the immediate given, but its re-elaboration in the correlation of the subject to the world " as the phenomenologists say ”[1]. However, in this text "the force of the obstacles which appear" and the "torsion of the forms" which are the marks of the Deleuzian aesthetic of sensation will be used for a systematic critique of phenomenology and in particular of a notion of the subjectivity proper to Merleau-Ponty. Our study aims to explore some essential features of this criticism that Deleuze addresses to Merleau-Ponty in the light of the use that Deleuze makes of Antonin Artaud and the notion of the body without an organ. We therefore begin an analysis of some essential stages in the criticism of Deleuze to all thought of the lived body and the flesh. However, the aim of this work will not be to establish the elements of rupture between the two authors, but, on the contrary, we sketch the hypothesis that there may exist a real continuity between Merleau-Ponty and Deleuze, despite their distance elements. On this point, it will be decisive to situate the convergence of the two authors in the need for a renewal of the notion of subjectivity precisely summoned by Deleuze against phenomenology. The challenge here is to provide new keys for thinking differently about the oppositions between the two authors and, to do this, it will be necessary to explain the role that the reading of Antonin Artaud played in the thinking of Deleuze and the last Merleau-Ponty

After Judgement: Synthesis and Constitution in the Work of Deleuze and Merleau-Ponty

Henry Somers-Hall

Royal Holloway, University of London, United Kingdom

In this paper, I want to explore the notions of synthesis we find in the work of Deleuze and Merleau-Ponty, against the backdrop of Kant's account of categorial synthesis. I will argue that Merleau-Ponty’s influence on Deleuze’s account of synthesis is significant, despite the paucity of explicit references to Merleau-Ponty in most of Deleuze’s work. I will show how Deleuze’s account of determination as a lightning flash can be understood in both Deleuzian and Merleau-Pontian terms. Having seen how Deleuze and Merleau-Ponty’s accounts of determination differ from Kant’s, we will then explore how this difference in determination leads both philosophers to a radically different notion of synthesis by exploring the affinities of Merleau-Ponty's transition synthesis with Deleuze's asymmetical account of synthesis of the intensive.

The Call for a New Earth, a New People: An Untimely Problem

Craig Lundy

Nottingham Trent University, United Kingdom

Abstract:

In their final book, Deleuze and Guattari state that the practice of philosophy ‘calls for a future form, for a new earth and people that do not yet exist’. This call is deeply problematic: aside from its aristocratic overtones, it is difficult to ascertain what it might sound like, how to give it voice, and what might come of it. But it is also problematic in form. In this paper I will explain how. After investigating its genesis in Deleuze’s engagements with Nietzsche and Bergson, I will outline the geography of the call as it appears in the mature work of Deleuze and Guattari. Aided by this analysis, the paper will conclude by making some tentative remarks on what is to be done with the call for a new earth and people – or, more accurately, what might be done with it, for the benefit of what is to come.
