In Logic Of Sense, Deleuze introduces a deep investigation of philosophy of 'event'. According to him, event is incorporeal. It can not be understood with the concepts and arguments that belong to corporeal (entities). This means the ontology of event is in the field of virtual instead of actual. He argues three main correspondences to event that are event is becoming, event is surface, and event is sense. Deleuze uses corkscrew relations for event and to take a single explanation can be really hard and problematic. My aim in this paper is, firstly, to show 'incorporeal' nature of event and correspondences within Deleuze’s philosophy and secondly, to discuss to the paradoxes each correspondence creates.

I am the teaching assistant with expected Master of Arts degree in Communication and Design program at Bilkent University. I take my BA at the department of philosophy at Middle East technical University and I am studing philosophy in communication and design in an interdisiplinary way. Currently, I am in the course of writing my M.A. thesis Gilles Deleuze’s ontology. I argue that the ‘and’s power as ontology lies in the new way of thinking that reveals multiplicity not as addition of components, but as connections and conjunctions that show ‘borders.’ I further argue that Deleuze’s “ontology of and” is also an “and” between aesthetics (it constructs) and politics (it signifies). This comes as an effect of Deleuze’s texts (and his collaborations with Guattari) that operate on many levels at once.
