Example text

Equilibrium is, in fact, the motor of the entire speculative and dialectical endeavour, evident in Hegel’s contention that the highest and final aim of philosophic science is to effect, by means of harmony (Übereinstimmung), a reconciliation (Versöhnung) of the self-conscious reason with the reason which ‘is’ in the world (‘seienden’ Vernunft). While applauding Hegel’ attack on all forms of philosophical moralism, one must also question the theoretical and practical ‘value’ and ‘validity’ of his insistent claim that philosophy ‘must necessarily be in harmony with actuality and experience’.

To say that philosophy must learn to harmonize with actuality experience is to restrict thought to a comprehension of what is. On Deleuze’s model, thought always produces experience in a way that exceeds the bounds of actuality. Philosophy is invention ‘beyond’ the limits of experience.
