L’univocità universale dell’essere in Deleuze

In the vast array of possibilities for investigating the topic, this contribution aims to recover the way Deleuze grappled with the questions arising from the concept of the universal. Although the French philosopher very rarely used the term, this does not mean, at least in my view, that he underestimated its problematic scope. On the contrary, my hypothesis is that he thematizes the question from other lexical cores, which, by assonance (rule, generality, repetition) or by contrast (difference, singularity, multiplicity), nonetheless refer to the constellation of meaning revolving around the universal. Through the analysis of the Empiricism and Subjectivity as well as Difference and Repetition, read as a key moment in the development of his thought, I develop the idea that the universal in Deleuze coincides with the thesis on the univocity of being.
