Gilles Deleuze Image and Text by Eugene W. Holland


Gilles Deleuze Image and Text by Eugene W. Holland

This is an important collection of essays examining the intersections between Deleuzian philosophy and the arts. Gilles Deleuze: Image and Text focuses on the intersection between Deleuzian philosophy and the arts. Deleuze combined exceptionally rigorous insight into important Western philosophers with an extraordinary sensitivity to literature, music, painting and film. He was intensely interested in the medium of thought, which is by no means limited to philosophy alone: it also takes place in science, mathematics, literature, painting and cinema, to name just some of the genres of thought to which Deleuze most often refers. His own thinking emerged almost as often in conversation with artists and literary writers as in engagement with other philosophers, and his philosophy cannot be fully grasped without an understanding of his engagement with the arts. This significant and timely collection of essays from an international team of leading Deleuze scholars brings together interpretations and commentaries from Deleuzian perspectives on subjects such as literature, painting, music and film. The book represents diverse modes of engagement with Deleuze's philosophical concepts and problems and demonstrates the central role the arts play in any understanding of his philosophical ideas.
