DELEUZE, READER OF SPINOZA: SPIRITUAL AUTOMATISM AND FASCISM IN CINEMA

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

This text seeks to find the origins of one of the most important Gilles Deleuze's concept, the concept of Time-image. This concept leads us to his first texts regarding Spinoza's philosophy and the problem of the spiritual automaton and concerns directly with the problem of passivity/activity of the film goer. That is to say that the crucial concept of his film philosophy, the Time-image, hides a fundamental consideration on the cinematic image as a mass art, the (un)powers of thinking and the fascist way of thought.
