There is no productive way of engaging Deleuze or James, or Dewey, or Rorty, not to mention fellow travelers, like Foucault and Latour, in a manner that could be contained entirely in the terms of their independent philosophical productions. To engage Deleuze is already to go beyond Deleuze. To think with James is already to think well beyond James. One cannot read either in isolation. Their pages always send one shooting around elsewhere—diving deep into the stacks like Melville’s sub-sub-librarian.
Given the difficulties faced in specifying exactly what pragmatist philosophy is, we obviously cannot expect to be able to identify Deleuze as a pragmatist in a way that is unproblematic. Nor is this our aim in assembling this volume. To attempt to characterize Deleuze as first and foremost a pragmatist would be a gross simplification, not only of his philosophy but also of the ways in which various pragmatists and neopragmatists have thought about what is distinctive in pragmatism. Nevertheless, as a number of contributors to this volume convincingly argue, Deleuze does, at various points in his oeuvre, exemplify some of the themes taken to be characteristic of pragmatist thought.
Paul Patton argues that, of all the French thinkers Rorty discusses, Deleuze is the one whose views come closest to his own. Patton then examines three important points of convergence: firstly, that Deleuze is a philosophical ironist in Rorty’s sense; secondly, that both philosophers advance antirepresentationalist approaches to thought and language; and finally, that both thinkers understand philosophy to have a pragmatic and political vocation involving the creation of new vocabularies. Patton concludes, however, that Deleuze and Rorty understand the political potential of such vocabularies in quite different ways.
