The relation of thought to the outside is both the object of this study and the theoretical framework within which it is inscribed. Moreover, thought always comes from the outside when it is a matter of questioning a vision of things that is no longer representative of current events. Although tied to its homeland, philosophical thought needs equally to be deterritorialized in order to acquire momentum and breadth: the outside is always what illuminates the inside, and never vice versa. This essay analyzes the concept of offside, starting from the works of Averroes, Bruno, Spinoza, Nietzsche, Foucault and Deleuze.
