What Does Deleuze Mean By 'A Life'?
Show Notes

On this episode Craig, Will, Matt, and Adam take a close look at Gilles Deleuze's essay "Immanence: A Life", one of his final writings in which he describes immanence as a 'transcendental field'. Deleuze makes use of a lesser known work by Charles Dickens entitled “The Same Respected Friend in More Aspects Than One", casting the events of the story as a paradigmatic example of  how singularities and their manners of expression are distinct from processes of individuation. This discussion approaches some of the ethical implications that might be drawn from Deleuze's work on immanence.
