For Deleuze, illness is not an enemy, not something that gives the feeling of death, but rather, something that gives a feeling of life (…) for Deleuze the question is clear: illness sharpens a kind of vision of life or a sense of life. He emphasizes that when he says vision, vision of life, life, it’s in the sense of him saying “to see life,” these difficulties that sharpen, that give life a vision of life, illness, life in all its force, in all its beauty. Deleuze feels quite certain of this, he says.
