" They trap an issue that runs all through his work--his lengthy look for a brand new and greater empiricism. introduced in his first publication, on David Hume, then commencing along with his early reviews of Nietzsche and Bergson, the matter of an "empiricist conversion" grew to become relevant to Deleuze's paintings, specifically to his aesthetics and his perception of the paintings of cinema. within the new regime of verbal exchange and information-machines with which he notion we're faced this day, he got here to think that any such conversion, such an empiricism, any such new artwork and will-to-art, used to be what we'd like such a lot.

Only when we are able to see the issues clearly are we in a position to assess also which practices and customs are to be valued and which are to be kept out of a cultural way of life. Such assessment, of course, amounts to carrying on a controversy to which ethicists can contribute by shedding light. 15 A phenomenological socio-ontological approach also goes against the grain of what is expected of ethicists when confronted in the present context with issues related to digital technologies.
