They are no broader than the conditioned: they are the conditions of real experience” (B 27). In the third case, Deleuze understands the method of intuition as founded on the primordiality of duration. Intuition takes duration as its element, and grasps problems and concepts from this point of view. As in the case of the second characteristic with respect to the ﬁrst, this temporalizing aspect to intuition encompasses the ﬁrst two characteristics also. g. the closed and the open” [ID 47]); in the second, the goal is to produce an account of diﬀerences in kind that ultimately turn around the diﬀerences of kind between matter and duration, on the one hand, and, on the other, the role that diﬀerences in kind play within the constitution of duration itself.
In chapter three of The Clamor of Being, Badiou turns to an account of how such a thought in fact works: the dynamism at the heart of the structure. If Deleuze perennially proceeds by invoking nominal pairs, it is to describe the terminal moments of a movement of thinking, only one of which is essential. 26 METHOD Intuition On the basis of this fundamental thesis, Badiou claims that Deleuze’s method for thinking the One and the multiple together cannot involve any of the three pre-eminent methods found in the history of philosophy.
Bergson extends this point, however, to claim that intuition as method is essentially concerned with diﬀerences in kind, as opposed to diﬀerences in number or degree. It aims to establish profound or fundamental division rather than remaining caught up in superﬁcial or merely apparent divisions. The key example in this regard that Deleuze considers is the division, central for Bergson, between spatiality and temporality. In one of the essential moves in his reading of Bergson, Deleuze extracts from him a rigorous ontological treatment of temporality, irreducible to any claim for the primordiality of extended spatiality.
