A new translation of two essential works on Deleuze, written by one of his contemporaries

This edition makes a new translation of two of Zourabichvili's most important writings on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze available in a single volume. Deleuze: A Philosophy of the Event (1994) is an exposition of Deleuze's philosophy as a whole, while the complementary Deleuze's Vocabulary (2003) approaches Deleuze's work through an analysis of key concepts in a dictionary form.

From the publication of Deleuze: A Philosophy of the Event to his untimely death in 2006, François Zourabichvili was regarded as one of the most important new voices of contemporary philosophy in France. His work continues to make an essential contribution to Deleuze scholarship today, and this new translation is set to become an event within Deleuze Studies for many years to come.

  • Distinguishes Deleuze’s notion of the event from the phenomenological, ontological and voluntarist conceptions that continue to lay claim to it today
  • With an introduction by Gregg Lambert and Daniel W. Smith, two of the world's leading commentators on Deleuze, explaining the key themes and arguments of Zourabichvili's work

Reviews

François Zourabichvili has long been acknowledged as one of the finest French readers of Deleuze and the author of one of the most compelling ‘strong interpretations’ of Deleuze’s philosophy. This excellent translation of his two short books is a significant and welcome development in English language Deleuze scholarship.
