DeLanda on Deleuze: Beyond the General and Particular in Philosophy

I’m again watching videos of the popular philosopher Manuel DeLanda speak on Deleuze‘s break with the tradition of philosophy based on the logic of general and particular categories of thought. I’m especially curious about this in light of trying to better communicate meaning, to surpass semantic meaning and touch on the significance of things, as DeLanda puts it. He articulates a trap that I often see myself falling into, bogged down by the phenomena of language while missing the significance of reality subject to an event or issue.

I first expressed a desire to fundamentally reformulate how I ask questions, the content of investigation, and the medium by which it’s communicated in an earlier post: Synecdoche and Political Analysis in the News.

I think the videos below are great tools in this quest. Plus, I have trouble understanding Deleuze without someone to translate him for me.

The videos are posted on the European Graduate School’s YouTube channel.
