### Integrations #1 - update

We're all looking forward to the 'Deleuze and Calculus' workshop this coming Saturday (14th April) and a few notes for those already registered and wanting to do some preparation before attending.

1) The first session will be led by Bat and he has suggested as a 'provisional outline' of what he will do the following:

"

2) The second session will focus on Chapter 4 of Difference and Repetition (the first twenty or so pages in particular - in the new Continuum edition I think pages 214-230 contain a very curious and interesting move (this is pp168-182 in the older Athlone edition and there is a 'natural' section break indicated in the Athlone that's missing in the Continuum. This corresponds to pp218-235 of the French Press Universitaire edition of 1968, where the 'natural' section break is also present.)

In addition to this chunk of Chapter 4 of DR the following essay is secondary material we might have time to explore - Simon Duffy,

*Re the first session, what I planned to run through was some stuff from Greek mathematics - Pythagoras, the Meno episode, irrational numbers, the method of exhaustion - then move onto Descartes and Newton/Leibniz and a basic exposition of calculus - followed by brief comments on how the question of making calculus rigorous spurred modern developments in mathematics, eg topology, analysis, logic, nonstandard analysis.*"2) The second session will focus on Chapter 4 of Difference and Repetition (the first twenty or so pages in particular - in the new Continuum edition I think pages 214-230 contain a very curious and interesting move (this is pp168-182 in the older Athlone edition and there is a 'natural' section break indicated in the Athlone that's missing in the Continuum.
