The final, probably minor query of "a life" is hence inseparable from Deleuze's impressive picture of philosophy now not as a knowledge we already own, yet as a natural immanence of what's but to come back. probably the whole exploitation of that photograph, from the most unique trajectories in modern philosophy, can be but to come.
