Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Daniel W. Smith's work on the great French philosopher Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) is owed a debt by English-speaking readers of Deleuze that is difficult to overstate ... Essays on Deleuze finally gathers this work together in a single volume, presenting these essays along a more unified trajectory that both records Smith's significant contribution to Deleuze studies while also laying foundations for new avenues of research... Throughout these essays Smith exhibits an uncanny knack for rendering intuitive some of the most obscure and vexing concepts and theses in Deleuze, to a point where the reader, upon receiving the instruction, is left wondering how the former confusion could have arisen... Essays on Deleuze clearly marks an important landmark in the study of Deleuze's philosophy, culminating a 15-year period of Smith's unique and highly influential readings of Deleuze."--Journal of French and Francophone Studies
