There is no need to sanctify books as such. Sartre, however provided a breath of fresh air from the outside. American literature in particular is based on a flight towards the west, a sense of the frontier.

Psychoanalysis attempts to do this, to replace ddleuze, although the apparatuses of power seem more interested in physics, biology and informatics.

The relations between actuals and virtuals can take the form of ‘a highly specific and remarkable singularization which needs to be determined case by case’.


A lot of journalism produces just empty words, and some books seem to be written for the review. This is selective listening and forced choice. It is successful when it follows the apparatus of power.

The ordinary European face is the base model. He returns to the notions of minor literature, deterritorialization, the critical and clinical, and begins a nascent study of cinema. This shows how work proceeds to assemble ideas, not joining or juxtaposing them but establishing a line between them.
