This chapter analyses Gilles Deleuze's engagement with the philosophical thoughts of Raymond Ruyer. It explains that Deleuze only briefly mentioned Ruyer in his Difference and Repetition, and that Deleuze's most extended treatment of Ruyer appears in The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque, though it occupied only two or three pages. Despite this, Ruyer can be considered as one of the most important influences on Deleuze's philosophy of biology, and a significant force in the development of Deleuze's ontology as a whole.
