In this way Aristotle sets up the cross on which ‘metaphysics’ is created: the inclusion of the Idea in nature excludes physics from Platonism, and exiles his philosophy to meta-physics, understood precisely as beyond nature, that is, concerned with other than sensible bodies. Insofar as Aristotle exiles these ‘other entities . . called Ideas’ (Met. 987b8), from the domain of physics, the object of his criticisms is the centrality of the Idea in Platonic physics. 1 The physics of the All and the physics of all things Plato himself, like the Presocratics, still has a concept of nature, that is of phusis, which means Being itself.

The distinction between matter becoming body and matter becoming subject is central to his understanding of naturephilosophy in general, and nature as subject in particular. The designation ‘natural science’, writes Kant, ‘in the strict sense belongs to the doctrine of body alone’ (Ak. V: 471; 1970: 8–9). )’ (Deleuze and Guattari 1988: 39–74). The parenthetical question clearly indicates the reopening of the inquiry into nature as subject or The Life of the Earth, as the title of naturephilosopher S.

Nor is the ‘view’ in question restricted to Deleuze alone. Rather, ‘Deleuzian’ in the present context involves the Nietzschean bedrock upon which much of the twentieth century’s ‘overturnings of Platonism’ were based. Nor need this fragmented Timaeus lead Badiou to the ‘anti-physics’ account he offers, as the naturephilosopher Lorenz Oken demonstrated: ‘the world is the reality of mathematical ideas’ (1847: 1). We discuss the number and animal dichotomy – the antinomy of a formalist Platonism – in chapter 2, below.
