Lógica del sentido

4.25 of 5 stars 4.25  ·  rating details  ·  379 ratings  ·  16 reviews
A través de treinta y cuatro series de paradojas articuladas en compleja trabazón, este libro, uno de los más importantes de su autor, se nos presenta como una especie de novela lógica y psicoanalítica en la que se intenta una constitución paradójica de una teoría del sentido, un pensar el sentido que no sería otra cosa que pensar el acontecimiento: ese morir que pasa y se ...more

god help me
I can't believe I finished this dense, infuriating, brilliant book. I had to read certain chapters four times, and if I only read a chapter once, I rarely understood it. Despite my careful reading, I'm not sure I fully get what Deleuze is going for. Worse, I don't totally care about the sections I rushed through.

I don't fully care because this book is seriously intertwined with classic philosophical problems, which I tend to find boring. I prefer political philosophy, science, and social psychol
Deleuze's concept of semantically generative events, and of semantic enhancement through intersections of paradoxical events (the disjunctive synthesis) was very helpful in the writing I did about art, and about intersecting exhibitions in the 1990s.

As an exercise in sheer conceptual exoticism and stimulating playfulness, Logique du sens is hard to beat. On the other hand, it could probably do with a "use at your own risk" sticker. I'm aware that entering as I did, and taking seriously Deleuze's
Deleuze doesn't cease to surprise with the next turn he takes, here onto the impossible subject of Lewis Carol's logic of sense. His analysis of the four dimensions of reading: denotation, manifestation, signification and sense is canonic. His note on surfaces and sense versus depths and sorrow (my note) is enlightening. It goes on an on in a series which one has faith in its convergence. Whereas for Badiou multiple being is set theoretic in his paradigm on multiplicity, Deleuze is the master of ...more

I'll probably come back and write a more complete review later. Until then, a really approximate comparison: this books offers plenty of insight, but isn't quite as hard-hitting as _Difference and Repetition_ or either volume of _Capitalism and Schizophrenia_ (despite the immense frustration I have with the latter in terms of the authors' style). And since we're being vague, let me add that much of _Logic_ overlaps with _D&R_ and _C&S_, so it's not clear what this work would offer the se ...more
Fue todo una acontecimiento el entrar a ese mundo de la lógica blanda, cuidadosa, milimétrica, del instante, de superficies frágiles, donde se pueden abrir grietas irreparables de terror homogeneo sin previo aviso, sin salida alguna, pero donde tambien sobrevive, afortunadamente, todo lo que es bueno de esta vida.
Deleuze no es un explorador de lo subterraneo -como Nietzche- ni un aeronauta -como Platón-, trabajo que proporcialmente a sus distancias es riesgoso y solitario, y donde varios perdie

"Evidentemente, toda vida es un proceso de demolición" (The Crack Up) Pocas frases resuenan tanto en nuestra cabeza con este ruido de martillo. Pocos textos tienen este irremediable carácter de obra maestra, y de imponer silencio, de forzar un asentimiento aterrado, como la novela corta de Fitzgerald. Toda la obra de Fitzgerald es un único desarrollo de esta proposición, y sobre todo de su "es evidente". Un hombre y una mujer, unas parejas (...) que lo tienen todo para ser felices, como
(una nota que hice despues de leer las dos primeras series)

Las dos primeras series son una crítica a la representación que va a comparar con el platonismo, en donde las copias remiten a ideas mas perfectas, representan, son signos de entidades fijas. Tienen profundidad en cuanto no son lo que son, sino signos de otra cosa. Los estoicos son los primeros en hacer una inversión del platonismo, introduciendo el acontecimiento. Aquello que tira “en los dos sentidos a la vez” y sucede en la superficie

Huge fan of Francis Bacon. I was ecstatic to find out one of my favorite philosophers actually wrote a book on such a fascinating subject: empirical sensations that attack Kant's metaphysics.

Yes this book does invent a metaphysics. Highly conceptual: he explains the nth degree in art, discarding nouns in art and replacing them with verbs (of course, the text is celebratory of this visibly in the text.)

I've read a few books on Francis Bacon, and I must say this is a worthwhile read. Deleuze und
A peculiar and difficult work, even by G.D.'s usual standards. Synthesizing studies of literature and psychology into a new dialectic of "sense" and "non-sense" does, indeed seem like it would be a fruitful effort. And, on the whole, his observations of Lewis Carroll's writings are wise and interesting. It's when Deleuze becomes early-Deleuze and becomes overreliant on Lacanian bullshit that I lose interest.
Gregor Kamnikar
Needless to say Deleuze has talent, enormous knowledge and intuition to put in words the unspokable and create inspiring concepts. It is great to read it along with yet another great book
Kathryn Kopple
With commentary about Plato, the Stoics, Lewis Carroll, and Artaud, Deleuze causes us to rethink age-old assumptions about philosophy, language, and symptomatology.
I need to read this again. I think I'm better equipped than when I read it the first time ...
No opinion yet - I've only gotten through a quarter of it.
Good stuff about Lewis Carrol.
must read if u like Pierce

Deleuze is a key figure in postmodern French philosophy. Considering himself an empiricist and a vitalist, his body of work, which rests upon concepts such as multiplicity, constructivism, difference and desire, stands at a substantial remove from the main traditions of 20th century Continental thought. His thought locates him as an influential figure in present-day considerations of society, crea ...more
