The Deleuze Dictionary

by Adrian Parr

The Deleuze Dictionary Synopsis

This dictionary is dedicated to the work of Gilles Deleuze, providing an in-depth introduction to a leading figure in continental philosophy. It defines and contextualises more than 150 terms that relate to Deleuze's philosophy: the key terms and concepts, his influences, and his influence in turn on feminism, cinema, postcolonial theory, geography and cultural studies. A user-friendly reference for both scholars and newcomers, both as a study and/or a teaching aid. In this revised edition, there are expanded entries on architecture, cinema and psychoanalysis - key areas where interest in Deleuze has grown in recent years.

The Deleuze Dictionary Press Reviews

A remarkable dictionary arranged creatively and rigorously by concept-terms in such a way that the distinct expertise of multiple distinguished scholars inflects each concept. -- Eleanor Kaufman, University of California, Los Angeles If the philosophy is the strata or plane for the production of concepts, this new revised Deleuze Dictionary is philosophy at its most creative: here key concepts from Deleuze's writings are illuminated and made to undertake new work, opening up new questions and new provocations. Strongly recommended both for those new to Deleuze's rich writings and to those already familiar with and excited by his profoundly original thought. -- Elizabeth Grosz, Rutgers University A remarkable dictionary arranged creatively and rigorously by concept-terms in such a way that the distinct expertise of multiple distinguished scholars inflects each concept.
