In this paper, I will address Deleuze and Guattari’s consideration of capitalism’s aborted birth in China by approaching the problematic from within their philosophy of history. To begin with, I will set out Deleuze and Guattari’s immediate answer, canvassing their machinic ontology and the significance that they place on immanence to the emergence of capitalism. In doing so, the question of history and historical interpretation will be raised. Following, I will investigate the status of such questions and inquire as to why Deleuze and Guattari ontinually pose them. From this analysis I will suggest that a critical philosophy of non-events can be found in Deleuze and Guattari’s work that is related to but distinct from their philosophy of the Event.

As it happens, Deleuze fails to include the first half of this quote every time that he references it (see Difference and Repetition, p. xxi, Nietzsche and Philosophy p. 107, The Logic of Sense p. 265, and Two Regimes of Madness p. 346). For more on the significance of this, see Craig Lundy, “Deleuze's Untimely: Uses and Abuses in the Appropriation of Nietzsche”, in Jeffrey A. Bell and Claire Colebrook (eds), Deleuze and History.
