The breakdown of the imagination in the sublime can be compared to Bataille’s notion of expenditure without return. It is an opening. But the appearance of Reason is a restoration of order and of closure. 5 But is it really possible to separate out the parts of the Kantian movement like this? Neil Hertz suggests that even the first moment of the sublime, the imagination’s distress, seems ‘slightly factitious, staged precisely in order to require the somewhat melodramatic arrival of Ethics’. Hertz has an important point here, though it is unfortunate that he chooses to denigrate melodrama.
Possibility is the tracing power of thought to mirror things formally while bracketing their reality. Deleuze and Guattari do not wish to bracket reality in thought. They want to open bodies to the reality of thought. This requires operating in the element of potential. The empiricism of their theories of expression is ‘transcendental’ by virtue of the transitivity and excess that come with potential. Potential carries too high a charge of reality not to be reborn and take another body: not to go beyond any determinate incarnation of it.
