Gilles Deleuze: A Portrait of Foucault

Melville said:
“… I love all men who dive. Any fish can swim near the surface, but it takes a great whale to go down stairs five miles or more… Thought-divers … have been diving and coming up again with bloodshot eyes since the world began.”

People will readily agree that intense physical pursuits are dangerous, but thought too is an intense and wayward pursuit. Once you start thinking, you’re bound to enter a line of thought where life and death, reason and madness, are at stake, and the line draws you on. You can think only on this witches’ line, assuming you’re not bound to lose, not bound to end up mad or dead.
