Dada & Phenomena: Butchering Merleau-Ponty’s Flesh with Deleuze’s Differential Machines

Deleuze is often considered an anti-phenomenologist. He even writes disparagingly of phenomenology’s ‘paltry’ lived-body, which we find in Merleau-Ponty’s thinking. Nonetheless, Deleuze still generated an original theory of phenomena. So rather than determining whether Deleuze was a phenomenologist or an anti-phenomenologist, we might instead attempt to formulate what a Deleuzean phenomenology would be. For Merleau-Ponty, phenomena are 

possible on account of three levels of harmonic integration: among the parts of 

the phenomenal world, among our body parts functioning in sensation, and 

between our body and the world enveloping us. All these overlappings bind us 

into the flesh of the world. Yet, a Deleuzean phenomenology would be based on precisely the opposite principles: the phenomenal world consists of incompatible differences shockingly forced upon us, all while our body functions disjunctively within itself and with our surroundings. Deleuze characterizes this sort of 

incohesion by referring us to the Dadaist machinery of Rube Goldberg and Buster Keaton. By showing how these principles allow for an alternate interpretation of Merleau-Ponty’s Gestaltist illustrations, we will consider the possibility that not 

only is a Deleuzean phenomenology possible, it may also be a superior means to account for the phenomenality of phenomena.
