Figurations of Immanence
Keywords:writing, immanence, writing-as-research, Cixous, Deleuze, arts-based research
If anything, Deleuze and Guattari’s philosophy, makes all living beings, including the human subjects, very much ‘part of nature’. Calling for an embodied philosophy of radical immanence marks the start of a bodily philosophy of relations. The body in this perspective is a relation to what is not itself. It is basically a movement or an activity. Could certain processes of writing be described as immanent to such movements or activities?
