The signs of art, by contrast, afford a full and stable revelation of essences and the pure form of time. They represent the culmination of the search for truth and provide a retrospective illumination of the true nature of the other three kinds of signs. Two obstacles to the interpretation of signs confront the apprentice at each stage of his education: a belief that ‘the “object” itself has the secret of the signs it emits’ (PS 26, 37), which Deleuze labels ‘objectivism’, and a belief that the truth of the sign is subjective.
A true science must be a science of activity, ‘of what is necessarily unconscious’ (NP 42, 48). Such a science will explore ‘the power of transformation, the Dionysian power’, which ‘is the primary definition of activity’ (NP 42, 48). Deleuze finds the key to this science of activity in Nietzsche’s philosophy of nature, which is ultimately a philosophy of dynamic relations of forces. Deleuze first distinguishes between dominant and dominated quantities of force and active 20 Deleuze’s Nietzsche and reactive qualities of force.
A body is defined by ‘this relation between dominant and dominated forces. Every relationship of forces constitutes a body – whether it is chemical, biological, social or political . . In a body the superior or dominant forces are known as active and the inferior or dominated forces are known as reactive (NP 40, 45). We know little about force and the body because we generally form our knowledge on the evidence of consciousness, and consciousness is itself only a symptom of the presence of reactive forces.
