“Idiotic Modesty in Deleuze’s Difference and Repetition” 

Russel Winslow, Tutor, St. John’s College, Santa Fe 

Friday, October 22, 4:45 p.m., Zoom link forthcoming 

 

In his famously difficult original work Difference and Repetition, Deleuze employs the phrase “philosophical modesty” several times. In particular, he writes of modesty as a mark of the beginning of genuine philosophical activity. Given that modesty is not usually the term that comes to mind to describe the disposition one observes in those presenting arguments (whether in academic conferences, academic journals, widely distributed television programs or social media blogs), this lecture seeks to flesh-out an interpretation of this curious phrase in Difference and Repetition. To this end, the lecture will meander briefly through the novels of Flaubert. For, Deleuze locates what he calls a “transcendental stupidity” in Flaubert, a central concept in the elaboration of modesty and the beginning of philosophy.
