By Samantha E. Bankston

This dissertation interrogates the idea that of changing into because it operates in an ontological
system of immanence. Our venture is to enquire changing into by itself phrases. now we have
chosen Gilles Deleuze because the thinker of changing into par excellence, who asks how
becoming results the fastened constructions of representational notion. regardless of being the
driving strength of Deleuze?s philosophical venture, he by no means officially systematized his
concept of changing into. Reconstructing the conceptual historical past of changing into in Deleuze?s
philosophy allows us to comic strip a differential, immanent ontology and its temporal and
causal procedures. From the outset, we find that Bergonian length and Nietzschean
eternal go back are re-appropriated in Deleuze?s inspiration of changing into. opposite to his
critics, Deleuze doesn't evince dualist ontology. Remapping the temporal traces which
inform the process his writings, we find that Deleuze?s ontology is tripartite.
Absolute changing into, sensory changing into, and effectuated being give you the panorama
through which natural distinction is produced. Staging conceptual encounters among
Bergson, Nietzsche, Leibniz, Borges, Klossowski, and Proust permits us to formulate an
explicit inspiration of changing into from their implicit temporalities in Deleuze?s philosophy. In
the finish, we observe the recent proposal of changing into to Deleuze?s works, demonstrating that
his canon dramatizes the immanent ontology he theorizes.

Elizabeth Grosz (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1999), 15-28. 34 state. 35 This change occurs internally through the productive relations of becoming and is not a derivative movement created abstractly as a connection between elements. 36 That is to say that even if the becoming of change can be measured in time, that time is merely a spatial representation and distortion of that change. We may note that Bergson‟s own example of sonority in music and its indivisible non-pulsed time reappears in several of Deleuze‟s texts addressing the movement of becoming.

Deleuze‟s understanding of change is integral to the development of sensory becoming. By redefining change in terms of internal difference, Deleuze begins to sculpt a new concept of becoming. Change The relationship between change and that which undergoes change retains its Bergsonian imparted immanence in Deleuze. Becoming is often very simply defined in terms of change. ”34 Or is becoming more complex? Virtual becoming is serially distributed into multiplicities of becoming with singular durations, and these becomings undergo substantial changes derivative to the very movement of the whole of becoming.

58 For Deleuze, the multiplicity of becoming functions in this same manner: sensory becomings heterogeneously 58 Henri Bergson, Time and Free Will: An Essay on the Immediate Data of Consciousness, trans. L. , 2001), 110. 46 permeate one another and are inexorably connected to actuality in the extensive world. This becoming through admixture is logically distinct from the absolute becoming elaborated in the re-appropriation of Nietzsche‟s eternal return. ”59 While sensory becoming and duration function in similar ways, absolute becoming is distinct from duration in terms of its unconditioned actualization through ontological forgetting.
