My paper will focus on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze. I will take the case of literature (namely, Proust, Sacher-Masoch, Kafka, Melville and Beckett) and map the different figures of the subject and discourse production in Deleuze’s analysis of literature in order to show the radicalization of his program of transcendental empiricism from a theory of faculties towards a theory of fabulation, passing by a theory of the collective assemblage of enunciation. By presenting the Deleuzian paradigm of a-subjectivity, my paper thus works as a counter-example of the whole approach of the first person perspective.
