Reducido el ser humano a una situación «óptica y sonora pura»: investir este intervalo de nuevas intensidades para poder recuperar nuestra creencia en este mundo

In the second volume The Time-Image, “Deleuze returns to reprise the major arguments in Nietzsche and Philosophy and Difference and Repetition concerning ‘the image of thought’ in both modern cinema and philosophy. It is here that he puts forward his most powerful claim that both post-war cinema and philosophy only dramatize a situation in which, concerning the psychological crisis announced in the beginning, modern man has been reduced to ‘a purely optical and sound situation,’ and it is only by investing this interval with new intensities can cinema and philosophy help to repair our belief in this world.”
