Deleuze and the Meaning of Life (Bloomsbury Studies in Continental Philosophy)

Claire Colebrook


The intensification of curiosity in Deleuze over the past decade has coincided with the top of the linguistic paradigm in either continental and analytic philosophy. certainly, the department among the 2 traditions seems to be last and the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze looks an important to this convergence, as he's either indebted to the phenomenological culture whilst he operates with techniques drawn from the sciences. Claire Colebrook explores those rules and gives a brand new and substitute evaluation of Deleuze's contribution to philosophy. She argues that whereas Deleuze does draw upon sciences that designate the emergence of language, artwork and philosophy, his personal suggestion is individual through a discontinuist thesis: structures might emerge from traits of existence yet regularly be capable of function regardless of their unique target. Colebrook makes new claims relating to how Deleuze's philosophy will be used to learn modern artwork and hence bargains an unique and the most important contribution to the Deleuzian debate.
