Revisiting Normativity with Deleuze

Overview

This volume assembles some of the most distinguished scholars in the field of Deleuze studies in order to provide both an accessible introduction to key concepts in Deleuze's thought and to test them in view of the issue of normativity.

Overview

This volume assembles some of the most distinguished scholars in the field of Deleuze studies in order to provide both an accessible introduction to key concepts in Deleuze's thought and to test them in view of the issue of normativity. This includes not only the law, but also the question of norms and values in the broader ethical, political and methodological sense. The volume argues that Deleuze's philosophy rejects the unitary vision of the subject as a self-regulating rationalist entity and replaces it with a process-oriented relational vision of the subject. But what can we do exactly with this alternative nomadic vision? What modes of normativity are available outside the parameters of liberal, self-reflexive individualism on the one hand and the communitarian model on the other? This interdisciplinary volume explores these issues in three directions that mirror Deleuze and Guattari's defense of the parallelism between philosophy, science, and the arts. The volume therefore covers socio-political and legal theory; the epistemological critique of scientific discourse and the cultural, artistic and aesthetic interventions emerging from Deleuze's philosophy.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This impressive collection of essays demonstrates how far Deleuzian research has moved into a new phase of engagement with fundamental questions in the humanities and sciences. It reflects the recent turn towards normative issues in Deleuzian philosophy, not only in the domains of political and legal philosophy in which they have been prominent but also in new areas such as epistemology, aesthetics and visual art. It provides informative and rigorous application of Deleuzian ideas to problems arising in philosophy, economics, literature and cognitive science. Revisiting Normativity with Deleuze truly represents the 'state of the art' in contemporary Deleuze studies.
