Abstract

Downloaded from http://read.dukeupress.edu/common-knowledge/article-pdf/27/3/484/1301590/484perl.pdf by DEEPDYVE INC user on 30 March 2022 another; their gazes do not meet; each seems to live in a separate world. Those men embody the “banal” or “weak” conception of perspective that Gilles Deleuze criticizes. Instead of connecting people, the notion of perspective as an eye pyra - mid, a kind of tunnel, induces them to avoid encounter. It corresponds to the notion of perspective used to put an end to discussion by saying that we all have our different viewpoints, thereby dissolving a disagreement instead of learning from each other’s standpoints. Contrary to the “perspectivers” depicted by the printmaker, Alloa asks whether we can try to “share perspectives.” By examining that question in response to Deleuze’s challenge, Alloa develops a stronger version of perspectiv - ism. He emphasizes that any perspective is a perspective of someone on some- t h i ng — on some thing, quelque chose, not all things, toutes choses — wh ich mea ns that a perspective, intrinsically limited, always cries out for completion by other perspectives.
