” The human subject is not really observing the world from a perspective outside existence. ” Teachers tend to forget they are part of the class, teachers are part of the social structure of the school, together with students.
“The observer is not a unified and coherent agent whose various faculties operate in concert to produce a re-presentation of the present observed phenomenon ” . The observer is part of a chaotic rhizomatic world and the “representation” is emerging in a unknown way from this chaotic rhizome. ” Dealing with change seems to require a paradigm that goes beyond representation altogether”. According to Deleuze objectivity in observation is almost impossible because of the observer not being a simple mind but a chaos of different faculties.
As education is a very complex matter, this view on the metaphysics of science could be an improvement. Deleuze calls difference (change) the most important perspective (and not identity). We often say “this is …”, Deleuze would say “this becomes …”
Deleuze wants to give ‘change’ a place in ontology. The Ideas of Plato prevent us from giving ‘change’ a place in classic ontology because only ‘being’ does fit.
” The empiricism of the actual is concerned with distinct identities, the empiricism of the virtual is concerned with the complex connections and potentialities hidden in every distinct phenomenon. ” The actual and the virtual are dimensions of the existence. (the intensive is the third dimension).
