Overview

The essays collected here testify to Deleuze's fundamental conviction that philosophy cannot be undertaken independently of science and art. As often in his writing, the names of philosophers such as Plato, Spinoza, Kant, and Nietzsche appear beside those of literary figures including Melville, Whitman, and D.H. Lawrence. Deleuze's ambition to dismantle the barriers between art and its adjacent domains is brilliantly realized here. 248 pp.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Deleuze's last published work exemplifies his longstanding interest in how philosophy relates to literature. For Deleuze, novels and short stories express their authors' diagnosis of life. This Deleuze takes in a quite literal way: he maintains that writers such as Proust are concerned with particular symptoms of mental illness. Besides Proust, Deleuze discusses Samuel Beckett, Alfred Jarry, and Charles Dickens, among others. This valuable study is an ideal introduction to Deleuze's distinctive concerns.David Gordon, Bowling Green State Univ., Ohio
