“Emerging from the Deleuzian nonsense machine is a new academic style, which has syntax without semantics. Turns of phrase implying deep concentration and a straining at the limits of abstract and mathematical thought are in constant evidence. When real thought appears, it is out of context, shorn of its foundations, reduced to a scattering of uprooted technicalities. Hence the style enables thought and non-thought to compete on equal terms, employing the same turns of phrase and the same argumentative structures. The privileges previously enjoyed by truth, validity and rational argument are cancelled at a blow, and the materials now exist with which to build an impressive scholarly career on a foundation of nothing.”

“Where I still dare to differ from Spinoza is that for him there is an idea of the mind, which is united to it as the mind to the body, and an idea of that idea, and so on. I should say that the mind is an idea, and that an idea of it is merely repetition.”
