Against the differentiation and the nihilistic collapse of reality and POWERS OF THE FALSE 33 virtuality, Deleuze and Guattari advance what Massumi has referred to as a third way of theorizing the simulacrum. Deleuze’s Affirmation Baudrillard evades the question of whether simulacra replaces a preexisting reality or precludes it (Massumi, 1987a). ” For Deleuze (1990), the simulacrum is not secondary to life, but rather, is life itself. There is no “real” world supplemented by its unreal virtual image.

The image of the student as an institutional servomechanism is anachronistic with the contemporary rhetoric of educational choice. As Aoki (2005d) avers, the curriculum and instruction landscape “suggests a diversity of offerings” (p. 417). ” “[T]he seeming . . diversity [of the curriculum] is an illusion because ‘they’ are manifestations of a [single] meaning of curriculum: the curriculum-as-plan” (p. 417). It is in this vein that the ostensible freedoms of the student are coded in advance by an a priori image of pedagogical life.

Contrary to Baudrillard’s (1994) negative virtuality, Deleuze approaches the virtual as a creative force for thinking difference. Repudiating the duality of the model and copy, Deleuze approaches the simulacrum as an ethics of the virtual. Such an ethics suggests that there is no a priori image or model of currere that exists prior to the simulacrum. Put differently, there is no natural, politically or ideologically neutral course of life that then differentiates, undergoes reform, or reconceptualization.
