See “Spinoza and the Three ‘Ethics,’” in Deleuze, Essays Critical and Clinical, esp. 148–51. Deleuze thus distinguishes in the three ethics signs or affects, notions or concepts, and essences or percepts. , whereas in this text from Essays Critical and Clinical, the concept becomes endowed with a relative speed. Percept is, on the other hand, one of the two terms used (with affect) to express, in opposition to concept, the plane of artistic composition in What Is Philosophy? Although in terms that still suggest a strict division of fields, this relationship was underscored by André Pierre Colombat in “The philosopher–critic and poet: Deleuze, Foucault, and the work of Michaux,” French Forum 16 (1991): 209–25.
From the Percept to the Concept I want to conclude by addressing the stakes of Deleuze’s path as well as my own reasoning such that it might clarify an emblematic illustration, committed to showing the driving force that the outside exerts on the thought of becoming. 1. ”41 In reality, cinema makes perceptible, with and against the time-image, the movement whereby time escapes the image at the very moment when the image aims for it. Such is the constitutive aporia of time, which assumes and removes the present in an incessant short circuit, where the instant slips away by advancing backward.
Reverse Shot: Blanchot–Deleuze–Foucault Before broaching this new step in my analysis of The Time-Image, I would like to pinpoint the diversion that Deleuze works on Blanchot. Blanchot–Deleuze It is clear by now that Deleuze’s use of Blanchot is hardly Blanchotian. In The Space of Literature, as in The Infinite Conversation, the outside is never formulated as a “thought,” but rather, as an “attraction” [attrait] that is also a “passion,” that is, the force of an attraction whose particularity is due to the fact that it strips the subject of all reference to being.
