Overview[ edit ] Deleuze used the term virtual to refer to an aspect of reality that is ideal, but nonetheless real. An example of this is the meaning, or sense, of a proposition that is not a material aspect of that proposition whether written or spoken but is nonetheless an attribute of that proposition. A dictionary definition written by Charles Sanders Peirce , referencing the philosophy of Duns Scotus , supports this understanding of the virtual as something that is "as if" it were real, and the everyday use of the term to indicate what is "virtually" so, but not so in fact. The window is nowhere in actuality, but is nonetheless real and can be interacted with. This example actually leads to the second aspect of the virtual that Deleuze insists upon: its generative nature. This virtual is a kind of potentiality that becomes fulfilled in the actual.

Others, such as the neuroscientist Gerald Edelman, have provided testable hypotheses regarding how these selection processes might work in the brain. Bergsonism, Phenomenology and Responses to Modern Science.
You can tell that Deleuze really loves and respects Bergson. On the basis of his model of the limits of chaos and order, Kauffman has fairly accurately linked the number of genes in the human genome to the number of cell types expressed by the genome. As Deleuze puts it, The brain does not manufacture representations, but only complicates the relationship between a bergzonism movement excitation and an executed movement response. Deleuze became known for writing about other philosophers with new insights and different readings, interested as he was in liberating philosophical history from the hegemony of one perspective.
Contains a clear definition of the virtual, a concept Deleuze takes up in his work outside of the history of philosophy.
He was a great philosopher precisely because of what his training and his discipline allowed him to create.
Notably, within his metaphysics he favored a Spinozian concept of a plane of immanence with everything a mode of one substance, and thus on the same level of existence. Arnason and Paul A.

When structural coupling between an autopoietic structure and its environment takes place, then an entirely new extended, autopoietic entity comes into being.
