This paper is on Deleuze's Diagrammatic Actualism, and discusses two versions of Deleuze that struggle for pre-eminence within Deleuzianism. One is that of the Virtual and the Concept - the other is of the Actual and The Diagram. Naturally, when it comes to Deleuze, such tendencies are always intertwined, but we still need to establish whether the Virtual and the Concept deserve the ontological priority they have hitherto received within Deleuzian scholarship. Perhaps the Actual can be retrieved from its currently derivative status when its ontology is understood diagrammatically. This paper is a first attempt at such a retrieval by looking at the way diagrams work both conceptually and phenomenologically in Deleuze's work as well as philosophy in general.
