Concepts such as ethics, values, and normativity play a crucial – if subtle and easily overlooked – role in Deleuze’s overall philosophical project. The essays in this collection uncover and explore the ethical dimension of Deleuzian philosophy along diverse trajectories and, in so doing, endeavour to reclaim that philosophy as moral philosophy.
