The Logic of Gilles Deleuze: Basic Principles

2021-01-01
French philosopher Gilles Deleuze wrote two 'logic' books: Francis Bacon: The Logic of Sensation and The Logic of Sense. However, in neither of these books nor in any other works does Deleuze articulate in a formal way the features of the logic he employs. He certainly does not use classical logic. And the best options for the non-classical logic that he may be implementing are: fuzzy, intuitionist, and many-valued. These are applicable to his concepts of heterogeneous composition and becoming, affirmative synthetic disjunction, and powers of the false. In The Logic of Gilles Deleuze: Basic Principles, Corry Shores examines the applicability of three non-classical logics to Deleuze's philosophy, by building from the philosophical and logical writings of Graham Priest, the world's leading proponent of dialetheism. Through so doing, Shores argues that Deleuze's logic is best understood as a dialetheic, paraconsistent, many-valued logic.

The Relationship of art and truth in the philosophy of Heidegger /
Kurt, Fikret; Ceylan, Yasin; Department of Philosophy (2014)
Revolutionary vision of Heidegger’s philosophy is rooted into the unthinking of the history of philosophy, and his extraordinary endeavor is to unravel whatever remained ignored under the courses of traditional philosophy: The meaning of the question of Being. By interrogating the meaning of the question of Being, Heidegger traces back to reveal the essential horizons related to the origin of thought and truth. Heidegger criticizes the traditional understanding of truth based on correspondence theory of tru...
