Summary:
This is the first critical study of The Logic of Sense, Gilles Deleuze's most important work on language and ethics, as well as the main source of his vital philosophy of the event.James Williams explains the originality of Deleuze's work with careful definitions of all his innovative terms and a detailed description of the complex structure he constructs. This reading makes connections to his ground-breaking work on literature, to his critical but also progressive relation to the sciences, and to his controversial denial of the priority of standard logics, human values and 'meaning' in thinking.This book will open new debates and develop current ones around Deleuze's work in philosophy, politics, literature, linguistics, cultural studies and sociology.Key FeaturesAn essential, clear account of a very difficult but rewarding philosophical textIntroduces a revolutionary philosophy in a critical but sympathetic wayContains an in-depth study of Deleuze's philosophy of language and his philosophy of the event
