Structuralism – Structure and the Sense-Event

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines Gilles Deleuze's concept of structure in his The Logic of Sense, its identity with the concept of the problem, and how it guided Deleuze's thinking about language. It analyses how some of the issues related to the influence of the Stoics and Gottfried Leibniz on Gilles philosophy of event can be re-described in structuralist terms. It shows how syntheses of singularities-events are most effectively described in structuralist terms and in terms of problems and solutions.

Keywords: concept of structure; Gilles Deleuze; The Logic of Sense; concept of the problem; Stoics; Gottfried Leibniz; philosophy of event; singularities-events
