This chapter aims to progress the project of investigating the ontological status of organisation by rendering explicit the idea of organisation that can be read implicitly within the work of Gilles Deleuze. It argues that Deleuze took Henri Bergson further in his consideration of the nature of philosophy, its relation to the body and to experience, and he developed a Bergsonian path between phenomenology and structuralism which is sensitive to both but fully embraces neither. It compares Deleuze and Bergson's concept of organisation and order.
