Deleuze's Philosophical Lineage

Edited by Graham Jones, Jon Roffe

eBook (PDF) i

The philosophy of Gilles Deleuze is increasingly gaining the prestige that its astonishing inventiveness calls for in the Anglo-American theoretical context. His wide-ranging works on the history of philosophy, cinema, painting, literature and politics are being taken up and put to work across disciplinary divides and in interesting and surprising ways. However, the backbone of Deleuze's philosophy - the many and varied sources from which he draws the material for his conceptual innovation - has until now remained relatively obscure and unexplored.

Written by the most respected and original scholars in the field, this book will prove essential reading for all those who want to understand in a clear, accessible and more nuanced way Deleuze's complex and multi-faceted relation to key (but sometimes forgotten) figures in the history of philosophy. I cannot imagine a better introduction to Deleuze as philosopher par excellence than this superb collection.
