Show Summary Details


This chapter investigates how Hoëne Wronski and Francis Warrain influenced the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, and explains that in Deleuze's discussion of calculus in his Difference and Repetition, he expressed his preference for Wronski's properly Kantian approach to the calculus. It argues that it is Warrain's earlier works, published in the first decade of the twentieth century, which may turn out to be more significant for understanding Deleuze's avowedly esoteric interpretation of the differential calculus.

Keywords: Gilles Deleuze; Hoëne Wronski; Francis Warrain; calculus; Difference and Repetition; philosophy
