By Tom Rockmore

A scientific and old research of the rela­tion of the positions of Fichte and Marx in the context of nineteenth-century German philosophy in addition to the broader his­tory of philosophy.

Rockmore’s thesis is that there's a little spotted, much less frequently studied, yet however profound structural parallel among the 2 positions that may be proven to be mediated throughout the improvement of the nineteenth-century German philosophical culture. either positions comprehend guy in anti-Car­tesian model, now not as a spectator, yet as an lively being. Rockmore demonstrates that there's similarity of the 2 perspectives of task when it comes to the Aristotelian inspiration (energeia), then shows the extra parallel be­tween the respective suggestions of guy that fol­low from Fichte’s and Marx’s perspectives of activity.

Turning to the historical past of philosophy, Rockmore directs the reader to stable textual proof helping the effect of Fichte, not just on Marx’s younger Hegelian contem­poraries yet on Marx to boot. He argues that the Hegelian influence at the interpretation of the nineteenth-century philosophical tradi­tion has served to vague the parallel be­tween the positions of Fichte and Marx, yet that the concept that of guy as an lively being can be utilized to reinterpret this section of the background of philosophy and to change the fre­quently held view of the classical German culture as a suite of fairly disparate thinkers. eventually, he offers a dialogue of the intrinsic worth of the anti-Cartesian ap­proach to guy as such.

Si Marx fascine tant les philosophes, c'est peut-être parce qu'il a si vigoureusement dénoncé l'illusion de "la philosophie", le "discours de l. a. mauvaise abstraction", toujours idéaliste même sous des dehors matérialistes, et toujours stérile malgré sa grandiloquence.

De Nietzsche à maître Eckhart

Jean Yves leloup nous suggest ici deux lectures magistrales de deux géants de l. a. tradition occidentale : Nietzsche, l'athée et Maître Eckhart, le théologien -mystique.

Il tente de remettre "à lendroit" un texte de Nietzsche, ECCE HOMO, souvent cité pour justifier tous les athéismes. Leloup montre que le dieu en lequel Nietzsche voyait une "antithèse de los angeles vie" n'a rien à voir avec le dieu des Evangiles qui est au contraire une puissance de vie et de libération, une claire lumière par laquelle le monde est vu. L'auteur, avec Maître Eckhart, nous entraine ensuite au-delà des contraires, au delà même de Dieu et de tous les Absolus que nous imaginons, vers notre essentielle et silencieuse liberté. ..

Taylor This chapter focuses on Deleuze’s Cinema 1: The Movement-Image (2005a) and Cinema 2: The Time-Image (2005b). ’ To answer this question the chapter draws on empirical data from two education research projects in which doctoral and undergraduate students employed video as a creative medium for selfexpression, as a method for constructing visual meanings about their educational identities, and for producing multi-dimensional reflexive narratives. In bringing together empirical materials, philosophical concepts and sociological ideas the chapter draws out from Deleuze’s writings on cinema some elements of a new conceptual language with which to consider visual data.

Sophie sits back down. Tyler: (looking into the camera, not at Sophie) Sorry, I have to go. ) 0:00:52 Sophie sits on the red rail and looks in the direction in which Tyler has gone. She is still holding on to the blue coat hanger that Tyler gave her. indd 31 05/02/2013 11:50 32 Deleuze and Research Methodologies 0:01:24 Sophie is still looking across the nursery at Tyler. She has been sitting like this since he left. The camera pans around and shows Tyler, who is sitting at the snack table eating, with Jon and some other children.

The Cinema books, then, exemplify Deleuze’s practice of philosophy as a form of concept-testing. Deleuze acknowledges this in his statement that the cinema books provide ‘a theory of cinema [which] is not “about” cinema, but about the concepts that cinema gives rise to and which are themselves related to other concepts corresponding to other practices’ (2005b: 268). As Tomlinson and Habberjam put it, Deleuze ‘is engaged in the work of concept creation “alongside” the cinema’ (2005: xvi). This philosophical act of ‘thinking with cinema’ clearly differentiates him from cinema historians and theorists (Nelmes 2011), analysts of cinematic style and form (Bordwell and Thompson 2010), genre studies (Altman 1999), and theorists of the cinematic experience and viewer engagement (Block 2010).
