Pure Immanence - Essays on A Life (Paperback): Gilles Deleuze Pure Immanence - Essays on A Life (Paperback)
Gilles Deleuze; Translated by Anne Boyman
R339 R271 Discovery Miles 2 710 Save R68 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Essays by Gilles Deleuze on the search for a new empiricism. The essays in this book present a complex theme at the heart of the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, what in his last writing he called simply "a life." They capture a problem that runs throughout his work-his long search for a new and superior empiricism. Announced in his first book, on David Hume, then taking off with his early studies of Nietzsche and Bergson, the problem of an "empiricist conversion" became central to Deleuze's work, in particular to his aesthetics and his conception of the art of cinema. In the new regime of communication and information-machines with which he thought we are confronted today, he came to believe that such a conversion, such an empiricism, such a new art and will-to-art, was what we need most. The last, seemingly minor question of "a life" is thus inseparable from Deleuze's striking image of philosophy not as a wisdom we already possess, but as a pure immanence of what is yet to come. Perhaps the full exploitation of that image, from one of the most original trajectories in contemporary philosophy, is also yet to come.

Two Regimes of Madness - Texts and Interviews 1975-1995 (Paperback, revised edition): Gilles Deleuze Two Regimes of Madness - Texts and Interviews 1975-1995 (Paperback, revised edition)

People tend to confuse winning freedom with conversion to capitalism. It is doubtful that the joys of capitalism are enough to free peoples.... The American "revolution" failed long ago, long before the Soviet one. Revolutionary situations and attempts are born of capitalism itself and will not soon disappear, alas. Philosophy remains tied to a revolutionary becoming that is not to be confused with the history of revolutions.--from Two Regimes of MadnessCovering the last twenty years of Gilles Deleuze's life (1975-1995), the texts and interviews gathered in this volume complete those collected in Desert Islands and Other Texts (1953-1974). This period saw the publication of his major works: A Thousand Plateaus (1980), Cinema I: Image-Movement (1983), Cinema II: Image-Time (1985), all leading through language, concept and art to What is Philosophy? (1991). Two Regimes of Madness also documents Deleuze's increasing involvement with politics (with Toni Negri, for example, the Italian philosopher and professor accused of associating with the Red Brigades). Both volumes were conceived by the author himself and will be his last. Michel Foucault famously wrote: "One day, perhaps, this century will be Deleuzian." This book provides a prodigious entry into the work of the most important philosopher of our time. Unlike Foucault, Deleuze never stopped digging further into the same furrow. Concepts for him came from life. He was a vitalist and remained one to the last. This volume restores the full text of the original French edition.The philosopher Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) published twenty-five books, including five in collaboration with Felix Guattari."

Difference and Repetition (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition): Gilles Deleuze Difference and Repetition (Paperback, 2nd Revised edition)
Gilles Deleuze 1
R406 Discovery Miles 4 060 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Since its publication in 1968, Difference and Repetition, an exposition of the critique of identity, has come to be considered a contemporary classic in philosophy and one of Gilles Deleuze's most important works. The text follows the development of two central concepts, those of pure difference and complex repetition. It shows how the two concepts are related, difference implying divergence and decentring, repetition being associated with displacement and disguising. The work moves deftly between Hegel, Kierkegaard, Freud, Althusser and Nietzsche to establish a fundamental critique of Western metaphysics, and has been a central text in initiating the shift in French thought - away from Hegel and Marx, towards Nietzsche and Freud.

Masochism - Coldness and Cruelty & Venus in Furs (Paperback, New Ed): Gilles Deleuze, Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch Masochism - Coldness and Cruelty & Venus in Furs (Paperback, New Ed)
Gilles Deleuze, Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch; Translated by Jean McNeil
R421 R335 Discovery Miles 3 350 Save R86 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In his stunning essay, Coldness and Cruelty, Gilles Deleuze provides a rigorous and informed philosophical examination of the work of the late 19th-century German novelist Leopold von Sacher-Masoch. Deleuze's essay, certainly the most profound study yet produced on the relations between sadism and masochism, seeks to develop and explain Masoch's "peculiar way of 'desexualizing' love while at the same time sexualizing the entire history of humanity." He shows that masochism is something far more subtle and complex than the enjoyment of pain, that masochism has nothing to do with sadism; their worlds do not communicate, just as the genius of those who created them - Masoch and Sade - lie stylistically, philosophically, and politically poles a part.Venus in Furs, the most famous of all of Masoch's novels was written in 1870 and belongs to an unfinished cycle of works that Masoch entitled The Heritage of Cain. The cycle was to treat a series of themes including love, war, and death. The present work is about love. Although the entire constellation of symbols that has come to characterize the masochistic syndrome can be found here - fetishes, whips, disguises, fur-clad women, contracts, humiliations, punishment, and always the volatile presence of a terrible coldness - these do not eclipse the singular power of Masoch's eroticism.

Francis Bacon - The Logic of Sensation (Paperback): Gilles Deleuze Francis Bacon - The Logic of Sensation (Paperback)
Gilles Deleuze
R403 R363 Discovery Miles 3 630 Save R40 (10%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

In this landmark text by one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century, Gilles Deleuze takes the paintings of Francis Bacon as his object of his study. The book presents a deep engagement with Bacon's work and the nature of art. Deleuze analyzes the distinctive innovations that came to mark Bacon's style: the isolation of the figure, the violation and deformations of the flesh, the complex use of color, the method of chance, and the use of the triptych form. Here Deleuze creates a number of his well-known concepts, such as the 'body without organs' and contrasts his own approach to painting with that of both the phenomenological and the art historical traditions. Deleuze links Bacon's work to Cezanne's notion of a 'logic' of sensation and, investigating this logic, explores Bacon's crucial relation to past painters such as Cezanne, Velasquez, and Soutine.

Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari 1
R534 R489 Discovery Miles 4 890 Save R45 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

'A Thousand Plateaus' is the second part of Deleuze and Guattari's landmark philosophical project, 'Capitalism and Schizophrenia' - a project that still sets the terms of contemporary philosophical debate. Written over a seven year period, 'A Thousand Plateaus' provides a compelling analysis of social phenomena and offers fresh alternatives for thinking about philosophy and culture. Its radical perspective provides a toolbox for aenomadic thought' and has had a galvanizing influence on today's anti-capitalist movement.

Psychoanalysis and Transversality - Texts and Interviews 1955-1971 (Paperback): Felix Guattari Psychoanalysis and Transversality - Texts and Interviews 1955-1971 (Paperback)
Felix Guattari; Introduction by Gilles Deleuze; Translated by Ames Hodges, Rosemary Sheed
R362 R295 Discovery Miles 2 950 Save R67 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Essays and articles that trace Guattari's intellectual and political development before Anti-Oedipus. Originally published in French in 1972, Psychoanalysis and Transversality gathers all the articles that Felix Guattari wrote between 1955 and 1971. It provides a fascinating account of his intellectual and political itinerary before Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia (1972), the ground-breaking book he wrote with Gilles Deleuze, propelled him to the forefront of contemporary French philosophy. Guattari's background was unlike that of any of his peers. In 1953, with psychoanalyst Jean Oury, he founded the La Borde psychiatric clinic, which was based on the principle that one cannot treat psychotics without modifying the entire institutional context. For Guattari, the purpose of "institutional psychotherapy" was not just to cure psychotic patients, but also to learn with them a different relation to the world. A dissident in the French Communist Party and active in far-left politics (he participated in the May 1968 student rebellion), Guattari realized early on that it was possible to introduce analysis into political groups. Considered as open machines (subject-groups) rather than self-contained structures (subjugated groups), these subject-groups shunned hierarchy and vertical structures, developing transversally, rhizomatizing through other groups. Psychoanalysis and Transversality collects twenty-four essays by Guattari, including his foundational 1964 article on transversality, and a superb introduction by Gilles Deleuze, "Three Group-Related Problems."

Translated and with an Introduction by Daniel W. Smith
Afterword by Tom Conley
Gilles Deleuze had several paintings by Francis Bacon hanging in his Paris apartment, and the painter's method and style as well as his motifs of seriality, difference, and repetition influenced Deleuze's work. This first English translation shows us one of the most original and important French philosophers of the twentieth century in intimate confrontation with one of that century's most original and important painters.
In considering Bacon, Deleuze offers implicit and explicit insights into the origins and development of his own philosophical and aesthetic ideas, ideas that represent a turning point in his intellectual trajectory. First published in French in 1981, "Francis Bacon" has come to be recognized as one of Deleuze's most significant texts in aesthetics. Anticipating his work on cinema, the baroque, and literary criticism, the book can be read not only as a study of Bacon's paintings but also as a crucial text within Deleuze's broader philosophy of art.
In it, Deleuze creates a series of philosophical concepts, each of which relates to a particular aspect of Bacon's paintings but at the same time finds a place in the "general logic of sensation." Illuminating Bacon's paintings, the nonrational logic of sensation, and the act of painting itself, this work--presented in lucid and nuanced translation--also points beyond painting toward connections with other arts such as music, cinema, and literature. "Francis Bacon" is an indispensable entry point into the conceptual proliferation of Deleuze's philosophy as a whole.
Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was professor of philosophy at the University of Paris, Vincennes-St. Denis. He coauthored "Anti-Oedipus" and "A Thousand Plateaus" with Felix Guattari. These works, as well as "Cinema 1, Cinema 2, The Fold, Proust and Signs," and others, are published in English by Minnesota.

Gilles Deleuze 1
R437 R400 Discovery Miles 4 000 Save R37 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Gilles Deleuze was one of the most influential figures in twentieth-century philosophy, whose master-works, Difference and Repetition and - with Felix Guattari - A Thousand Plateaus and Anti-Oedipus have become one of the most widely-influential bodies of work in contemporary thought. Cinema II is Deleuze's second work on cinema, completing the reassessment of the art form begun in Cinema I. Influenced by the philosophy of Henri Bergson, Deleuze here offers a compelling analysis of the cinematic treatment of time and memory, thought and speech. The work draws on examples from major film makers, including Federico Fellini, Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles, among many others.

R441 R405 Discovery Miles 4 050 Save R36 (8%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Logic of Sense is one of Deleuze's seminal works. First published in 1969, shortly after Difference and Repetition, it prefigures the hybrid style and methods he would use in his later writing with Felix Guattari. In an early review Michel Foucault wrote that Logic of Sense `should be read as the boldest and most insolent of metaphysical treatises'. The book is divided into 34 `series' and five appendices covering a diverse range of topics including, sense, nonsense, event, sexuality, psychoanalysis, paradoxes, schizophrenia, literature and becoming and includes fascinating close textual readings of works by Lewis Carroll, Sigmund Freud, Seneca, Pierre Klossowski, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Emile Zola. Logic of Sense is essential reading for anyone interested in post-war continental thought.

In this extraordinary work Gilles Deleuze, the most renowned living philosopher in France, reflects on one of the figures of the past who has most influenced his own sweeping reconfiguration of the tasks of philosophy. Deleuze's brilliant text shows how current definitions of philosophy do not apply to Spinoza: a solitary thinker (yet scandalous and hated), he conceived of philosophy as an enterprise of liberation and radical demystification much as did Leibniz or, later Nietzsche. Spinoza confronts the grand philosophical problems that are still current today: the comparative role of ontology (the theory of substance), of epistemology (the theory of ideas), and of political anthropology (the theory of modes, passions, and actions). The goal of this book is to determine the rapport among the univocity of Being in the theory of substance; the production of truth and the genesis of sense in the theory of ideas; and practical joy (or the elimination of the sad passions) and the selective organization of the passions in the theory of modes.

This brilliant exposition of the critique of identity is a classic in contemporary philosophy and one of Deleuze's most important works. Of fundamental importance to literary critics and philosophers, Difference and Repetition develops two central concepts--pure difference and complex repetition&mdasha;and shows how the two concepts are related. While difference implies divergence and decentering, repetition is associated with displacement and disguising. Central in initiating the shift in French thought away from Hegel and Marx toward Nietzsche and Freud, "Difference and Repetition" moves deftly to establish a fundamental critique of Western metaphysics.

Gilles Deleuze, Felix Guattari 1
R472 R447 Discovery Miles 4 470 Save R25 (5%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The collaboration of the philosopher Gilles Deleuze and the psychoanalyst Felix Guattari has been one of the most profoundly influential partnerships in contemporary thought. 'Anti-Oedipus' is the first part of their masterpiece, 'Capitalism and Schizophrenia'. Ranging widely across the radical tradition of 20th Century thought and culture that preceeded them - from Foucault, Lacan and Jung to Samuel Beckett and Henry Miller - this revolutionary analysis of the intertwining of desire, reality and capitalist society is an essential read for anyone interested in postwar continental thought.

Giles Deleuze (1925-1995) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII. He is a key figure in poststructuralism and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. In "Foucault", Deleuze presents one of the most incisive and productive analyses of the work of Michel Foucault. This is a crucial examination of the philosophical foundations and principal themes of Foucault's work, providing a rigorous engagement with Foucault's views on knowledge, punishment, power, and the nature of subjectivity.

R417 Discovery Miles 4 170 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

"Authors, if they are great, are more like doctors than patients: they are themselves astonishing diagnosticians or symptomatologists." So wrote the philosopher Gilles Deleuze, setting himself the task of demonstrating the connections between literature and medicine. The essays collected here testify to Deleuze's fundamental conviction that philosophy cannot be undertaken independently of science and art. As so often in his writing, the names of philosophers such as Plato, Spinoza, Kant, Nietzsche and Heidegger appear beside those of literary figures including Melville, Whitman, D.H. Lawrence, Beckett and Artaud. With this book, Deleuze's life-long ambition to dismantle the barriers between art and its adjacent domains is brilliantly realized.

Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari redefine the relation between the state and its war machine. Far from being a part of the state, warriers (the army) are nomads who always come from the outside and keep threatening the authority of the state. In this daring essay inspired by Nietzsche, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari redefine the relation between the state and its war machine. Far from being a part of the state, warriers (the army) are nomads who always come from the outside and keep threatening the authority of the state. In the same vein, nomadic science keeps infiltrating royal science, undermining its axioms and principles. Nomadology is a speedy, pocket-sized treatise that refuses to be pinned down. Theorizing a dynamic relationship between sedentary power and "schizophrenic lines of flight," this volume is meant to be read in transit, smuggled into urban nightclubs, offices, and subways. Deleuze and Guattari propose a creative and resistant ethics of becoming-imperceptible, strategizing a continuous invention of weapons on the run. An anarchic bricolage of ideas uprooted from anthropology, aesthetics, history, and military strategy, Nomadology carries out Deleuze's desire to "leave philosophy, but to leave it as a philosopher."

R353 R287 Discovery Miles 2 870 Save R66 (19%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

A fascinating anthology of texts and interviews written over 20 years by renowned French philosopher Gilles Deleuze. "One day, perhaps, this century will be Deleuzian," Michel Foucault once wrote. This book anthologizes 40 texts and interviews written over 20 years by renowned French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, who died in 1995. The early texts, from 1953-1966 (on Rousseau, Kafka, Jarry, etc.), belong to literary criticism and announce Deleuze's last book, Critique and Clinic (1993). But philosophy clearly predominates in the rest of the book, with sharp appraisals of the thinkers he always felt indebted to: Spinoza, Bergson. More surprising is his acknowledgement of Jean-Paul Sartre as his master. "The new themes, a certain new style, a new aggressive and polemical way of raising questions," he wrote, "come from Sartre." But the figure of Nietzsche remains by far the most seminal, and the presence throughout of his friends and close collaborators, Felix Guattari and Michel Foucault. The book stops shortly after the publication of Anti-Oedipus, and presents a kind of genealogy of Deleuze's thought as well as his attempt to leave philosophy and connect it to the outside-but, he cautions, as a philosopher.

Alguna vez Michel Foucault pronostico que la filosofia del siglo XXI seria "deleuziana." En verdad, ya antes de la muerte de Gilles Deleuze sus obras se habian transformado en referencia ineludible del pensamiento contemporaneo. Tanto en sus trabajos sobre otros filosofos (Nietzche, Spinosa, Bergson) como en sus obras mayores algunas de ellas realizadas conjuntamente con Felix Guattari, Deleuze desplego un pensamiento creativo, libre y libertario.Justamente, esas son las senas de identidad que fueron apreciadas por sus numerosos lectores, quienes trascendieron el circulo de especialistas en que tantos pensadores quedan atrapados. Diferencia y repeticion es un libro mayor de Gilles Deleuze, un trabajo exhaustivo sobre la historia de los conceptos filosoficos, y a la vez la exposicion brillante de un modo de pensar problematizador y desapaciguante. Contra el espiritu conservador, Deleuze restaura en este libro la potencia creativa de la filosofia.

Deleuze identifies three pivotal concepts-duration, memory, and elan vital-that are found throughout Bergson's writings. In this analysis of one major philosopher by another, Gilles Deleuze identifies three pivotal concepts-duration, memory, and elan vital-that are found throughout Bergson's writings and shows the relevance of Bergson's work to contemporary philosophical debates. Deleuze interprets and integrates these themes into a single philosophical program, arguing that Bergson's philosophical intentions are methodological. They are more than a polemic against the limitations of science and common sense, particularly in Bergson's elaboration of the explanatory powers of the notion of duration-thinking in terms of time rather than space.Bergsonism is also important to an understanding of Deleuze's own work, influenced as it is by Bergson.
