Show Summary Details


This chapter suggests that phenomenologist Edmund Husserl hold a place of honour in Gilles Deleuze's dramaturgy. It explains that Deleuze was interested in Husserl and in phenomenology because it was essential for Deleuze to maintain a detached relationship with a friend/enemy capable of keeping him in suspense up to the end. The chapter argues that Deleuze was not a simple follower of Husserl, but that he took from the latter a certain orientation of thought which gives a new twist to the major themes of Cartesian Meditations.
