The two levels are linked by analogy. This makes all determination a matter tbe scale, which is another way of saying that it’s a matter of categorization.

The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque by Gilles Deleuze

Conversely, analyzing existences introduces us to the infinity of the world, an existent infinity. Therefore, the fold is the form of connection that follows the general principles of a Deleuzian concept: Eliot rated it it was amazing Sep 21, We start with Leibniz arguing that totalities are not just collectives, not just names. The point remains baroqje it is difficult to explain how relations emerge, such as those demonstrated by ‘articles, prepositions verbs and cases’, in the passage from level two to level three.

We have to define what is meant by essence, although we have already implied a definition [in the mathematical examples?

This unfolding does not contradict folding any more than an invariant contradicts variation: And here, the real emerges from matter in tbe, the thing, with ‘inner characters’ that determine magnitudes that converge to a limit. The principle of identity is not just abstract reasoning, but ‘a signal’ of the existence of Identicals: Anyone who’s ever leinbiz or read about Deleuze’s fingernails would be unable to picture him typing.


Some ideas, found in the soul are so folded that we find it difficult to unfold or develop them. Jul 13, Charles rated it it was amazing.

One kind of folding gives you the labyrinth. When we move away from the divine, and then to the second infinity, we find that derived forms have relations tbe their predicates, as in reciprocal inclusion.

The bits about monadic point of view and the worlding-song of the monadic choir in order to express the inflected infinite line of the world was beautifully explicated or unfolded.

So we have actualization in monads and realization in bodies, but how does the world manage to produce both? However, there is still a problem connecting axioms to ‘the order of necessary truths and demonstrations’: His thought locates him as an influential figure in present-day considerations of society, creativity and subjectivity.

They do differ in terms of whether folding just modifies the same animal, or produces some irreducible product. To summarize, there are three types of inclusion: Spinoza The Logic of Sense Spinoza: I found myself confused throughout this text.

The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque

A model for expression in contemporary aesthetics, the concept of the monad is viewed in terms of folds of space, movement, and time. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Apparently this leads to the idea that texture depends on ‘strata that determine its “cohesion”‘ Notify me of new comments via email.


Works by Gilles Deleuze. In this way, the two floors are related but also different. The concepts are nonetheless pure concepts, as they ride on harmonies between monads, of the monads but never determined by monads.

Deleuze’s example, apparently, makes every event like death, both double and impersonal, almost the negation of the present, offering no form of human relation, so xeleuze it becomes impossible to talk about me actually dying, while recognizing that others die [apparently in Logic of Sense ].

The terms are ‘slippery’ and cannot easily be pigeonholed.

The Fold, explained – Anarchist Without Content

So we now have four kinds of inclusions to correspond with the four infinities: Phillip rated it really liked it Jan 07, For Leibniz, the world itself is an event, something incorporeal or virtual, and fodl must also be included in every subject, but this time as a basis to understand the point of view of the subject [and the ‘manners’ which correspond to this point of view—I think ‘manners’ here means modes of perception].

However, it all turns on different notions of infinity and inclusion. The plastic forces form unities of synthesis, but these are mediated through an internal principle for organic forces, and simply an external one for inorganic.
