Fr. 346

June 17, 2013

To claim that Deleuze’s account of science is flawed or inaccurate is to miss the point entirely. The philosopher aims not to state the discipline in itself, its goals, its methods, its gains, in an accurate way but to give a presentation of these from the point of view of a philosopher, i.e. a philosophical presentation, such that the philosopher might come to his or her own understanding of the matter. In other words, Deleuze is not stating on the behalf of the scientists what science is, but, instead, making philosophical sense of science. An accurate determination of science for itself can only fall to scientists themselves.
