Deleuze Special Panel (Second Day, 4 October 2023)

Moderator: Alex Taek-Gwang Lee

Deleuze Special Edition

This panel will explore archipelagic thoughts by looking into Deleuze and Guattari’s philosophical arguments on islands and planetary ideas. In particular, noteworthy is Deleuze’s essay on desert islands, which is one of the most outstanding philosophical engagements with the material foundations of the planetary and the archipelagic: the international law and its projection onto the oceans.
