By Samantha E. Bankston

This dissertation interrogates the idea that of changing into because it operates in an ontological
system of immanence. Our undertaking is to enquire changing into by itself phrases. we have now
chosen Gilles Deleuze because the thinker of changing into par excellence, who asks how
becoming results the mounted buildings of representational proposal. regardless of being the
driving strength of Deleuze?s philosophical undertaking, he by no means officially systematized his
concept of changing into. Reconstructing the conceptual background of changing into in Deleuze?s
philosophy permits us to comic strip a differential, immanent ontology and its temporal and
causal strategies. From the outset, we find that Bergonian length and Nietzschean
eternal go back are re-appropriated in Deleuze?s notion of changing into. opposite to his
critics, Deleuze doesn't evince dualist ontology. Remapping the temporal strains which
inform the process his writings, we find that Deleuze?s ontology is tripartite.
Absolute turning 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 proposal of changing into from their implicit temporalities in Deleuze?s philosophy. In
the finish, we follow the hot thought of changing into to Deleuze?s works, demonstrating that
his canon dramatizes the immanent ontology he theorizes.

The inadequacy of transformation in producing the new reflects the necessary re-conception of the role of change in becoming, as discussed previously. Correlatively, mechanistic causality, which recomposes movement from static essences or immobile snapshots of time, will fail to produce the new. This conventional scientific causality presupposes successive, linear time where the cause is retroactively constructed according to the image of the effect. As such, the effect is already contained within the cause, privileging numerical novelty rather than qualitative novelty.

Deleuze‟s concept of becoming has its own developmental history and is a unique collage of Bergsonian and Nietzschean becoming. He re-appropriates the concept of becoming from the temporal projects of these two key thinkers. This re-appropriation is both distinct from, and integral to, Deleuze‟s innovative theory of time. This study proceeds with the intention of disambiguating the relationship between Deleuze‟s concept of becoming and his theory of temporal synthesis. Therefore, to adequately apprehend the temporal processes of the concept of becoming in Deleuze‟s ontological system, we must first remap the conceptual components that he extracts from the history of philosophy.

43 We can also state that the process of becoming will never be attained by combining being with the inadequacy of nonbeing. The proliferation of becoming is the dynamic production of relations of the real. Becoming produces the concepts of being and nonbeing, illusory as they are, in relations of difference: the real. Deleuze follows Bergson in removing the notion of becoming from an alleged formation in the conceptual realm and places it in the midst of the sensible. In Creative Evolution, Bergson grounds 42 For Bergson, the intellect functions like a cinematograph, where single, motionless snapshots are strung along in succession to create the perception of movement.
