Example text

Reynolds explicates and juxtaposes the metaphilosophical commitments of Deleuze, Nicholas Rescher, Sami Pihlström, and Joseph Margolis, particularly with respect to their understanding and treatment of the “methodological triumvirate” of transcendental reasoning, methodological naturalism, and common sense. Reynolds concludes that a key stumbling block to any rapprochement is Deleuze’s commitment to a form of transcendental philosophy and its associated critical ambition. In the final chapter of the collection, Claire Colebrook stages an encounter between Deleuze’s philosophy and pragmatist thought in such a way as to reorient the reader’s thinking about pragmatism.

Paul Patton argues that, of all the French thinkers Rorty discusses, Deleuze is the one whose views come closest to his own. Patton then examines three important points of convergence: firstly, that Deleuze is a philosophical ironist in Rorty’s sense; secondly, that both philosophers advance antirepresentationalist approaches to thought and language; and finally, that both thinkers understand philosophy to have a pragmatic and political vocation involving the creation of new vocabularies. Patton concludes, however, that Deleuze and Rorty understand the political potential of such vocabularies in quite different ways.

By engaging with these explicit references and such points of overlap, then, the present volume hopes to fill, at least in part, a major lacuna in the literature on Deleuze. The silence on the side of Deleuze scholarship with regard to pragmatism is matched by an equally significant silence with regard to Deleuze on the side of pragmatists. Philosophers working in the tradition of American pragmatism in the last thirty-five years have taken considerable interest in contemporary French and European philosophy.
