Preview

This book aims to provide various clear points of entry into the labyrinth of Gilles Deleuze's thought, but without sacrificing any of its philosophical complexity or integrity in doing so. It discusses Deleuze's own intermittent descriptions of his work and provides characterisations of Deleuze's philosophy. The chapter also explores the similarities and differences between Deleuze's thoughts and philosophy and those of other philosophers including Plato, John Duns Scotus, and David Hume.

Keywords: Gilles Deleuze; philosophical complexity; philosophical integrity; Plato; John Duns Scotus
