The two levels are linked by analogy. However, the clear region of the monad bsroque with the clear region of another, prolonging convergent series into each other.

The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque – Gilles Deleuze – Google Books

The relation cannot just be an aspect of the body [I’m not sure why, you can define it however the hell you like –maybe this would introduce a hierarchy? The latter produce ‘the revelation of a half-other”the animal in me as a concrete being'[good Leibnizian grounds foold becoming-animal, then].

Everything is always the same thing, there is only one and the same Basis; and: They also have a relation of harmony with each other.

Concepts are linked into serial chains. In this difficult book, Gilles Deleuze takes the figure of Leibniz as a starting point to thee a determinate position of differentiation. However, this is not the only possible world, only one of the range that god has created: We can at least notice ‘simple empirical consecutiveness’ in animals. The difference between organic and inorganic can be explained in deeluze of different folds as well.

Thought, in philosophy, is conceived as a reference point for purity of form. Can a general notion of the material folds be developed, ‘a spiritual point that envelops form’ 42? These principles also show reciprocal argument — who knows which one came first in Leibniz’s thought, even though they appear as one following as a consequence of the other in the actual order of presentation?

At least the argument now indicates that we can use the principle of identity to become aware of things [through one of those inversions that we saw with the principle of sufficient reason.

A discussion also appears in Difference and Repetition according to my notes: Similarly, visibility is not entirely similar to point of view. In this sense, Leibniz links with Spinoza in pursuing an ontological proof of the existence of God, unlike the shortcut that Descartes offers.

Obscure and clever stuff. Aug 09, Andrew rated it liked it.

Ne consiglio la lettura a patto che si conoscano il pensiero di Leibniz e i fondamenti dell’analisi quali calcolo differenziale ed integrale e serie: May 09, Daniel Coffeen rated it it was amazing. There is a constant production of exteriors and interiors, extension and enclosure. This idea has been developed by artists such as Klee belowand this differs from those who operate with more Cartesian spaces, such as Kandinsky. The terms are ‘slippery’ and cannot easily be pigeonholed.

The Fold, explained

However, it all turns on different notions of infinity and inclusion. In the actual work by Leibniz, there are lots more principles and transformations of them. Leibniz here is engaging in an old debate about the union of the soul and the body, about incarnation.

However, every relation must have a subject, so the dominant monad must still be the subject of the substantial vinculum [otherwise, the substantial vinculum must have no subject, and therefore just appear in some free floating way]. Here, we have a relation not of subject and predicate, but one that is substantial. Deleuze is arguing that, at the time anyway, his notion of thrusts and impulsions instead of attractions works just as well.

This is found in baroque thinking as the notion of a ‘several orders of infinity’ [a horribly vague argument, this]. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.

In Leibniz, it has a metaphysical reality by being attached to a corresponding subject. One implication seems to be that philosophy should not domesticate this original event with schemas derived from ontology or epistemology, with names, by attempting to make sense—that would not be worthy of the event.

Similarly, the world is interpreted as a body of infinite folds and surfaces that twist and weave through compressed time and space. Every actual human individual can experience these partial zones in their bodies as monads pass through them. The Stoics [whom Deleuze much admires, and he has used this example elsewhere], saw the event as the incorporeal part of the subject, so that trees are not green, but rather ‘”the tree greens”‘.

The point of that is that inclusions of various kinds are central if sufficient reason is going to work across different applications. Indeed, when discussing Identicals, ‘non contradiction suffices as reason’ and [more bafflingly] ‘the principle of contradiction is a case of sufficient reason'[a note refers us to Leibniz himself, and his apparent view that sufficient reason should also be extended to examine contingent truths as well as necessary ones].

The style of this book is relaxed and personal, ‘without pretension’ xi. No trivia or quizzes yet. We considered the primaries first as simple bodies featuring auto-inclusion, and as the attributes of God, his predicates.

Leibniz is trying to say that the world a body of infinite “folds” yhe surfaces that intersects or shall we say interweave through compressed time and space. Still, if you do not read French well, this very important book should not escape you even in this edition. The Logic of Sensation Cinema 1: The argument is that we have to understand baroque architecture if we are to thw Leibniz and the monad—which, increasingly, seems to refer to the upper floor only of the baroque house.
