C.Duffy. There are some claiming you were or elements of your work were Jungian.
Deleuze: hahah, that's amusing (his eyes filling with tears) ... after all the work Felix and I did to... move the other the machine, factory, assemblage, agencement.... hahah its odd, and if it were not sad, it would be amusing.
You see let me explain that were I to be born again and had no choice of who to become I'd become Freud rather than Jung! Better yet I 'd be Schreber! or glorious Nietzsche...
Or I could be Mozart's music ~.
'Symphony No.40 (Allegro Molto)' Molto ~ molto ~
Should those who think this way want to go back to Difference and Repetition and the works I wrote before the encounter with Guattari then by all means do so. But I ask you this: how can they be read the same after having read the later work?
So my reply is to say shit to the Jungians, once and for all, and that they are worse than the Freudians. I mean Lacanians!too! yes, we mentioned Jung in Antioedipus ... does that bind us to him? or (sick malade maladie) interpretosis? We made use of many ideas and we used whatever was at hand ...and we also stated again that we were able to move along and that our work was not representing a coherent whole, that it's a machine, an assemblage gathering parts along the way, deterritorializing this line and that outlandish one to go farther down the opening line of the road and its fluent escapes... wherefore Jung and Freud?
I prefer what Joyce says
My imagination grows when I read Vico as it doesn’t when I
read Freud or Jung.'
and we were tired of trees and myths... we were fed up
Read Miller... Whitman, Kerouac..
