Deleuze: The Clamor of Being by Alain Badiou

The works of Gilles Deleuze—on cinema, literature, painting, and philosophy—have made him one of the most widely read thinkers of his generation. This compact critical volume is not only a powerful reappraisal of Deleuze's thought, but also the first major work by Alain Badiou available in English.

Deleuze draws on a five-year correspondence undertaken by Badiou and Deleuze near the end of Deleuze's life, when the two put aside long-standing political and philosophical differences to exchange ideas about similar porblems in their work. The result is a critical tour de force that radically repositions Deleuze and offers new insights to even the veteran Deleuze reader.

What People are Saying About This

Wlad Godzich

Small this book may be, but it will have the effect of a bomb. Badiou challenges at the outset the received perception of Deleuze. Far from being some avatar of May 1968, anarchist in nature, and dedicated to the glorification of all that flows, especially the primal sanctity of desire, Deleuze, according to Badiou, is an aristocrat of thought, very much dedicated to rehabilitating the metaphysical project in our day. Badiou proposes a 180 degree turn in the interpretation of Deleuze's work, and all those who have taken Deleuze to be the apostle of desire, flux, and animal anarchy whill have apoplexy reading this book.
