Postscript on the Societies of Control
Gilles Deleuze: Foucault located the disciplinary societies in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries; they reach their height at the outset of the twentieth. They initiate the organization of vast spaces of enclosure. The individual never ceases passing from one closed environment to another, each having its own laws: first the family; then the school (“you are no longer in your family”); then the barracks (“you are no longer at school”); then the factory; from time to time the hospital; possibly the prison, the preeminent instance of the enclosed environment. It’s the prison that serves as the analogical model: at the sight of some laborers, the heroine of Rossellini’s Europa ’51 could exclaim, “I thought I was seeing convicts.”
The Body, the Meat and the Spirit: Becoming Animal
Gilles Deleuze: The body is the Figure, or rather the material of the Figure. Above all the material of the Figure is not to be confused with the material structure in space which is separate from this. The body is a Figure, not structure. Conversely, the Figure being a body, is not a face and does not even have a face. It has a head, because the head is an integral part of the body. It can even be reduced to its head. As a portraitist, Francis Bacon is a painter of heads and not of faces. There is a big difference between the two. For the face is a structured spatial organization which covers the head, while the head is an adjunct of the body, even though it is its top. It is not that it lacks a spirit, but it is a spirit which is body, corporeal and vital breath, an animal spirit; it is the animal spirit of man: a pig-spirit, a buffalo-spirit, a dog-spirit, a bat-spirit… This means that Bacon is pursuing a very special project as a portraitist: unmaking the face, rediscovering or pulling up the head beneath the face.
On Human Rights
Gilles Deleuze: The reverence that people display toward human rights — it almost makes one want to defend horrible, terrible positions. It is so much a part of the softheaded thinking that marks the shabby period we were talking about. It’s pure abstraction. Human rights, after all, what does that mean? It’s pure abstraction, it’s empty. It’s exactly what we were talking about before about desire, or at least what I was trying to get across about desire. Desire is not putting something up on a pedestal and saying, hey, I desire this. We don’t desire liberty and so forth, for example; that doesn’t mean anything. We find ourselves in situations.
Qu’est-ce que l’acte de création?
Gilles Deleuze: Je voudrais, moi aussi, poser des questions. Et en poser à vous, et en poser à moi-même. Ce serait, heu…, ce serait du genre : qu’est-ce que vous faîtes au juste, vous qui faîtes du cinéma ? Et moi, qu’est-ce que je fais au juste quand je fais ou quand j’espère faire de la philosophie ?
Capitalism: A Very Special Delirium
Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari: We do not use the terms “normal” or “abnormal”. All societies are rational and irrational at the same time. They are perforce rational in their mechanisms, their cogs and wheels, their connecting systems, and even by the place they assign to the irrational. Yet all this presupposes codes or axioms which are not the products of chance, but which are not intrinsically rational either. It’s like theology: everything about it is rational if you accept sin, immaculate conception, incarnation. Reason is always a region cut out of the irrational…
Les conditions de la question: ‘Qu’est-ce que la philosophie?
Gilles Deleuze: Peut-être ne peut-on poser la question qu’est-ce que la philosophie que tard, quand vient la vieillesse, et l’heure de parler concrètement. C’est une question qu’on pose quand on n’a plus rien à demander, mais ses conséquences peuvent être considérables.
