But this static common sense needs a dynamic of good sense to maintain the identity of the object and the unity of the subject through time. However, I think he needs to bear some burden of explanation. How can he know mind-independent objects apart from his subjective faculties? How can he know objective properties apart from the categories of possible experience and apart from his subjectively hinged faculties? DeLanda still has not escaped the structure of Representation-Analogy with its distributive common sense and hierarchical good sense. He does not escape analogy which essentially relates being and actual objects.

Deleuze now searches for the condition of this wider existence—what makes the undetermined ground the fractured I, the passive self of a well-determined given time determinable. There is a dialectic interplay between the condition of a passive self with sensations and concepts and the given objects in time which Kant tries to cut off by appeal to the pure apriori given, which are thereby separated from concepts and sensations.

Therefore all references to the individual are flattened by this exclusion of the virtual, of intensities, and lacks a robust philosophy of multiplicity. As we have seen above Delanda does well to identify the problematic of the anthropocentric concept of time.

They are the abstract components of every articulation. The second articulation establishes functional, compact, stable structures forms , and constructs the molar compounds in which structures are simultaneously actualised substances. Expression is about how structures function as 1 organization of their own specific form and 2 substances as they form compounds: 1 form as organization and 2 content of expression of compounds.

Deleuze and Guattari 43 There is an alloplastic grouping of strata rather than autoplastic that only makes changes within which make modifications in the external world through a new distribution of content and expression.

Alloplastic layers work with linguistic rather than genetic forms of expression, including symbols that are comprehensible, transmittable and modifiable from outside. Therefore a formation of power is much greater than a tool, and a regime of signs is much more than a language—they are determining and selective agents—as much in the constitution of languages and tools as in their usages or diffusions.
