Example text

Michael Clark points out that in Barthes’s notion of Text the word is not situated in the world, as it is for historicists, nor is the world situated in the word, as it is for formalists, but rather the word is treated as world (2000:7). 10 For Deleuze, theory is a regional system in the struggle against systems of power. It does not totalize (as power does) but is rather an “instrument for multiplication and it also multiplies itself” (Deleuze in Foucault, 1977:208). It is theory that the intellectual uses in the “struggle against the forms of power that transform him into its object and instrument in the sphere of ‘knowledge,’ ‘truth,’ ‘consciousness,’ and ‘discourse’ ” (Deleuze, in Foucault, 208).

But, says Deleuze, too much attention is given to history. He writes, “[w]e think too much in terms of history, whether personal or universal” (Deleuze and Parnet, 1987:2). Contrary to this, for Deleuze and Guattari, “[p]hilosophers carry out a vast diversion of wisdom (their stratigraphy); they place it at the service of pure immanence” (1994:44). In doing so, “[t]hey replaced genealogy with a geology” (44). ” (44). How could philosophy not profit from instituting a prephilosophical plane? (44).

As mentioned, certain types of pragmatics block the way to the possibility of “new analytical, aesthetic and social practices,” as Guattari says of postmodernism itself (1996:112). This chapter will raise the issue of the definitional problems of pragmatics that give rise to a turning away from the aesthetic. Such pragmatics explored include philosophical pragmatism, linguistic pragmatics, and certain aspects of postmodern pragmatics.
