Examines Deleuze’s psychoanalytic and philosophical engagement with the Lacanian School

Guillaume Collett questions to what extent we can locate Deleuze within the Lacanian School during the late-1960s, prior to Guattari. In so doing, he offers a new, integrated reading of Deleuze’s The Logic of Sense (1969) by understanding it as a ‘psychoanalysis of sense’, and gives a new interpretation of Deleuze’s conception of philosophy itself.

The Psychoanalysis of Sense: Deleuze and the Lacanian School is an extensively researched project that provides a detailed approach to Deleuze's relationship with psychoanalysis during the 1960s ... Collett's book is well worth reading. [It] provides crucial voice to the under-explored area of the intersection between Lacan and Deleuze, one that requires further examination.
