Brief introduction to the day and introduction of invited people.



Dr John Mullarkey’s lecture Diagrammatic Actualism, ACTUAL VIRTUAL (selected half hour)

“My argument is basically that, whereas Deleuze tends to think of his diagrams as virtual processes – as only a potentially concrete (or actual) thing – I believe that it is better to think of them as already actual processes.”
