Abstract: The choice of comparing two thinkers from such different intellectual backgrounds as Gottlob Frege and Gilles Deleuze is on the one hand an invitation to compare, to find similarity, to abstract, with the intention of uncovering some truth about the nature of language. On the other, it is meant to show the profound and, at times, irreconcilable differences separating two conceptions of language stemming from differing and perhaps inimical ways of thinking. The importance of such a comparison and contrast should not be neglected, as the study and development of formal languages currently plays an important role in linguistic research and computer science. To better understand how natural language and formal language are related might offer valuable insight into the possibilities of “formalizing” natural language.
