The readings are of two kinds: those that produce illumination and the others. “Thinking must be launched like a stone by a war-machine”, considers Deleuze. Hence the point of writing: “Write something so as to produce speed”. Here too we see the purpose of metaphors, that of producing illumination. There is no coincidence that a philosopher like Rorty believes that intellectual and moral progress appears more like “a history of metaphors, more and more useful, than a history of a growing understanding of how things really are”.
