Sample text

This reaches its pitch in Christianity where we are permanently guilty in an irredeemably fallen world. For Nietzsche, the proper response to this fall into nihilism, decadence and ressentiment is not to find another basis of truth but to abandon our enslavement to truth. We need to have the force and courage to live with this world here and now. ) Concepts are not correct pictures of the world; we should not be striving to create a science or theory that is as close to the world as possible. Concepts are philosophical precisely because they create possibilities for thinking beyond what is already known or assumed.

We have already seen the way in which, for Deleuze, everyday opinions generalise and reduce concepts to their already known forms. Everyday opinion is also limiting, Deleuze argues, because it assumes that there simply is a POWERS OF THINKING 23 24 KEY IDEAS common world, there to be shared through language as information and communication. Opinion not only assumes a present and shared world; it also assumes a common sense whereby thinking takes the same ‘upright’ form distributed among rational perceivers.

We cannot limit who or what we might become by any image of what we already are. The advent of cinema might give us one form of transversal becoming: not a becoming that is grounded in a being and which simply unfolds itself through time, but a becoming that changes with each new encounter. Becoming is not just the unfolding of what something is. A thing (such as the human) can transform its whole way of becoming through an encounter with what it is not, in this case the camera. But this can only be so if we encounter the camera of cinema, not as something we already know, but as something that challenges us.
