This chapter focuses on Gilles Deleuze who wrote that thought and creation are inseparable from a critique. It discusses Deleuze's two ways of criticizing. One way stresses beliefs, knowledges, and determinate principles that may be judged false in counterposition to others that are judged to be true. The other way is the understanding of critique as a negative activity that presupposes an object of critique on which its activity falls, disavowing it upon repositing and structurally affirming it while pretending to overcome it as it moves to another place or topos. The chapter also explains Deleuze's view on thought being inseparable from a critique. A critique is something other than the critique, in the same sense in which a life is different from the life.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, creation, critique, counterposition, topos, thought
