SOBRIETY AND DELEUZE

“Sobriety” is an important pluralist virtue, aimed at avoiding the introduction or the perpetuation of transcendence. Deleuze often appealed to the virtue of sobriety, and we can see an evolution in his collaboration with Guattari from the extravagant style of ANTI-OEDIPUS to the tranquil sobriety of WHAT IS PHILOSOPHY? This is also the sense of Guattari’s own move from “schizoanalysis” to the “ecosophy” of his later years. In both cases we have an emphasis not on any particular theory or model, but on what Guattari calls “meta-modelization”, containing a series of reflections, lines of reference, and reminders on the multiple aspects of the real that any particular model will have to take into account.
