Summary

The French school of diagrammatic philosophers was inspired by Gilles Deleuze’s comments on Bacon [258] and then elaborated upon and deepened by gesture theorists and philosophers, such as Gilles Châtelet [190] and Charles Alunni [24]. This important French approach to gestures reveals a delicate aspect of embodiment in that gestures are conceived as being presemiotic. Gestures—except when ‘tamed’ by social codes—are not signs in a semiotic environment.
