"A theory is exactly like a box of tools. It has nothing to do with the signifier. It must be useful. It must function. And not for itself… It is strange that it was Proust, an author thought to be a pure intellectual, who said it so clearly: treat my book as a pair of glasses directed to the outside; if they don’t suit you, find another pair; I leave it to you to find your own instrument, which is necessarily an investment for combat.”
- Gilles Deleuze
Above photograph: Jean-Paul Sartre, Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault. Almost too much subversive and revolutionary spirit for a photo to handle. ALSO I LOVE HOW FOUCAULT HAS A HALO OVER HIS HEAD. PATRON SAINT OF CRITICAL THEORY.
