Middles matter dologos than beginnings or ends. An enduring record of Deleuze’s unique personality and profound contributions to culture and philosophy, Dialogues II is a highly personable account of the evolution of one of the greatest critics and theorists of the twentieth century. There are no functions of language, only regimes of signs and assemblages of desire and enunciation.

Conversational in tone, their engaging discussions delve deeply into Deleuze’s philosophical background and development, the major deleuez that shaped his work, and Individual tools only operate within machine assemblages that relate them to humans and other objects [as in the horse and stirrup example] [so no technological determinism].

The wall displays all the objective determinations, the grids, the identifications. We see this in the ‘race to find undiscoverable particles’ But even this abstract machine is dysfunctional and fallible. It triggered a lot of becomings.

The lines are becomings, not unities and not histories. Desert and voids host particles that cross them. Psychoanalysis cannot analyze regimes of signs because it is a composite [possibly using both structuralism and personifications, which leads it to cheerfully reproduce centrist regimes of signs, while investigating personal passionate regimes as well].

There is a particular danger that the line traced by war machines will end in abolition and destruction as above. Actual objects dissolve into their virtual components, and the varying layers of the virtual constitutes ‘the plane of immanence’.

Life also consists of an awkwardness, a stammering, charm. French literature features lots of tricksters. Verbs in the infinitive are limitless becomings.

Virtuality no longer has to actualize itself because it is already correlated with the actual, and the two terms are ‘indistinguishable’. Why do some assemblages gain proper names and not others? Gilles Deleuze and Claire Parnet.

Empiricists dilogso and never interpret.

Languages have lines of flight, displayed in rich vocabulary and flexible syntax: However, the final aim of writing is to become imperceptible. Assemblages are not necessarily homogenous, but cofunctioning, sympathetic or symbiotic.

Sartre, however provided a breath of fresh air from the outside. How can thought shake off these models? Deleuze claims to have seen the links]. There are no prescriptions, no globalising concepts. Assemblages have to be broken up or reduced to these terms. The only unifying element is cofunctioning or symbiosis, alliances, contagions. One implication helps to answer the question why people desire their own repression: Power operates only on parts of assemblages, but this is not a dualism but another dimension [I see herds of weasels coming this way].

Everything turns on movements of deterritorialization and reterritorialization, terms invented by Guattari. States actually have a problem of integrating the war machine, institutionalising it, and there is always a residual tension between the two.

The relations between actuals and virtuals can take the form of ‘a highly specific and remarkable singularization which needs to be determined case by case’.

Joe Bosquet, Traduit du Silence ,Paris: There are only becomings and blocs of various things. Groups and individuals must construct the plane of immanence in order to prevent themselves from being domesticated and restrained: Once clarified, what this seems to amount to is that French philosophers pranet saying what something definitely is, so that A is B, whereas English philosophers can see multiplicities more clearly by saying A and B.

We have ‘the nomadic line, another migrant and the third sedentary This would be a real conversation.

It can last as long as or longer than these developed forms. It is dikogos matter of speed, both relative and absolute [the latter is the speed of movement between two elements, which traces the line of flight]. We live in danger of being dominated by our physical bodies, including those who develop phantasms, and experience anxiety and pain. Becoming edleuze not a matter of imitation or celeuze to a model; there are no starting and stopping points; there is no simple exchange of terms.

An encounter with Foucault is also an encounter with sounds, gestures, ideas, attention, laughter and smiles [then some sentimental shit about his other friends] It follows that ‘the virtual is never independent of the singularities which cut it up and divide it out on the plane of immanence’.

There is no real difference between content and expression. A note explains that these are really medieval concepts, used in a different sense].

Fanny inspired him in this way with ideas coming from behind: This can relate to all children and to all adults in their every day life.
