Remix recreation of philosophical mythology

[Undeniably Deleuze’s philosophy is far from autonomous, as he merely constitutes a kind of workshop for the production of concepts. Therefore, rather than focusing our attention on whether or not Deleuze re-presents those whom he thinks with and through in an accurate and scholarly fashion, we will instead take Deleuze’s word for it and treat these works as an attempt to take these thinkers beyond themselves, as if Deleuze had picked up an arrow of thought and shot it to some other place, to some other unthought thought.

And thus the philosophies of Hume, Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant, Nietzsche, Bergson, Foucault, et al would be a remix recreation in the years to come. Literary philosophy as an expression will perhaps fall inadequate. Why not call it philosophical mythology? [TNM]


  1. I think that's a fine name for it. The rationalists won't like it though.

  2. The rationalists are nothing but Ontology famished and they can have their fill.
