S PHILOSOPHY AS APPLIED TO THEphilosophy as applied to the linguistic domain in Chapter 4Deleuze Lite Chapter 4 Virtuality and the Laws of PhysicsDelanda reconstructs Deleuze for a scientific audience but then bifurcates virtual science from virtual philosophy according to his proclaimed flat ontology of individu Rather than going back to worship at the temple of Deleuze DeLanda s polymathic interdisciplinary approach pushes well beyond the co It s good and smart and whatever but I still think a realist reading of deleuze is the most buzzkilly thing ever Usually I don t pen reviews but since this book which I consider to be important. At the start of the 21st Century Gilles Deleuze is now regarded as the most radical and influential of contemporary philosophers Yet his work is widely misunderstood and misinterp.
