Deleuze and Guattari's Language for New Empirical Inquiry
St. Pierre, Elizabeth Adams
Educational Philosophy and Theory, v49 n11 p1080-1089 2017
This paper reviews Deleuze's theory of language in "Logic of Sense," and Deleuze and Guattari's theory of language in "A Thousand Plateaus." In the ontology informed by the Stoics described in those books, human being and language do not exist separately but in a mixture of words and things. The author argues that this flattened ontology of surfaces is incommensurable with the ontology of depth used in conventional humanist qualitative methodology and recommends beginning new empirical inquiry with a concept instead of with method and methodology.
