ABSTRACT

This paper elucidates the notion of ritournelle in Deleuze's philosophical system, and the exact position and functional role of ritournelle in the image of thought that he proposed. Ritournelle exhibits the concrete modes of ‘becoming’ in terms of the ‘agencement’ and its conversion formed between the ‘stratigraphic system’ and the ‘plan of consistence’. Also ritournelle has three aspects of infra-agencement, intra-agencement, and inter-agencement: The first displays the transformation from chaos to environment, while the second shows the conversion from environment to ‘territorial agencement’, and the third exhibits the conversion and transformation between agencements. Ritournelle as territorial agencement becomes being of sensation in Deleuze’s explication of ‘territorization’ by expression and constitution. The notion of ritournelle as being of sensation not only renders the origin of art to initiate simultaneously with all the natural kinds, but also expands the extension of art to all becomings through aesthetic expression and constitution. The question of ethos, forming one's mode of life in the given environment, is not different from the process of making one's life as artwork. As for Deleuze, ritournelle is a concept showing the becoming and creation of beings in their lives, as well as a conceptual apparatus demonstrating that ontology and aesthetics along with art and life are originated from the same roots.
