DELEUZE AND DEPRESSION

When Deleuze theorises the kind of “one-sided dialogue” that Feyerabend talks about, he tells us that creation stems from a solitude that is richly populated because each of us “is many”, that is his depression talking just as much as his joy, and there is no way to for us to separate them any more than he did. Deleuze was very wily and would reject depression in the name of Spinozan joy and of Nietzschean affirmation. But he would then go on to talk about solitude, ascesis, becoming secret, striking a blow against stupidity, seeing the intolerable, the shame of being a man, being schizo, and deterritorialisation, and still people would think his pluralism was a big party!
