Ok, that was nice that Mister Bad i.O.U. (hes bad cause his i.o.u. stinks and he hates the writings of our Deleuze and Guattari turning their work upside down to get what he wants from it and abstracting Guattari from the equation ___ negating the works of that Deleuze wrote called One Thousand Plateaus and Antioedipus__ Bad i o u is not on the ball __ its as if someone denied that Louis Armstrong ever did good music when he played in orchestras with other people besides himself..... Badiou is off base...quotes Arthur Rimbaud remarking on what he calls a tie between poetry and philosophy one that he says is ancient. But is that the case? Is it not rather the case that the tie between poetry and philosophy is that philosophers have tried to imprison poets? and Plato's the most notorious of them all? Everyone knows the story of the Republic and how poets or bards, makers, men like Homer were to be banished , expelled, kept out, held at a remove where their influence is diminished or becomes virtually nothing.
Far as I know Deleuze is one of the few, of a handful of philosophers who did not put poets in square boxes that don't fit, but let the poets and writers that he loved find their own place ________ the writings (and life)of Artaud (for instance) in his work and the books he co-wrote with Felix Guattari is of the first order .
The first page of Antioedipus is sprinkled with invisible quotations from poets, the second page outright quotes from Le nz and the famous image of the schio out for a walk that's closely followed by Beckett and his awkward gaited Malones and Molloys within a few pages there's Lawrence and Miller, Artaud's steam engines examples of exemplary desire-machines bursting the surface of stupid Oedipalization and the pathetic compromises that ensue thereby.
What a sham to deny them their glory or the glory of Artaud and the other artists they humbly take from and from whom they admit philosophers and psychiatirits ought to humbly acknowledge and learn from
Badiou is the author of the negative rangadang clatter along with his general Zizek the attacker. Mister Hegel upside Lacan the priest of lack. How they hate! HOW THEY urge the negative ! Missery Bad I.O.U. and Lacan, and General signifier Zizek hate what Deleuze did. let's not pull punches anylonger.
So the tie is also a chain, a shackle a prisoner's bond forcing him to do time. to do time in the philosopher's sentence and to live like a dog. memorizing his own poems forgetting those of others___ Now Plato is also peeved at poets cause they dont represent true things as he sees them
that being the IdeaARs and eternal shapes of the Ideal Real.....
Were Arthur Rimbaud
alive do you think
he'd read Bad I.O.U???
no t so likely
One Thousand Plateaus
and its anomoulous
he'd tuned already into the Illuminations at 17
He'd laugh Bad i.o.u
out of court
There are more things in heaven and earth
than in your philosophy Horatio
says Mister Hamlet
and it goes on and on ....
and at AntiOEDipUs there's also a blog along a similar lines
about these philocopsohers
