Propositions about the possible touch in Leibnizian theses about future contingents. This problem seems to behave Bergson suspicion: the uses that have been made within the philosophy of this term are from Leibniz, seated prejudice which share a philosophy and common sense. In this perspective, the potential presents itself as a kind of projection of this retrospective. Bergson 's critique of this idea seems to explain the need for philosophy to consider the multiplicity intensive or duration as a stream of unpredictable novelty, the real, then, could not be reduced to a multitude of possible previously available. In ontological perspective, a critical position in relation to possible be carried out due to the substitution of the possible through the prism of the virtual. This concept will establish itself as one of the organizers of individuation lines that take place on the virtual tendencies involved in the expansion of the vital impulse on the matter. In this sense, we defend the thesis that the reversal of the ontological possible is operated in Bergsonian philosophy in order to establish a dynamic organization of individuation for considering the unpredictability and the creation of new forms as fundamental characteristics. From the base of individuation renewed Bergsonism provided by the philosophy of difference Deleuze reconfigures the problem due to the existence of a pre -individual transcendental field propositions formulated in Difference and Repetition. There, the problem goes back to the scene of Bergsonian distinction between virtual and possible and which consists in the attempt to delimit the field of multiplicities intensive and consequently exploit the dynamism present in differentiating pre-individual singularities
