Show Summary Details


This chapter traces the genesis of the body in Gilles Deleuze's Cinema 1 through the crises in recognition in Cinema 2, and suggests that Deleuze's most basic claim in his cinema books is that cinema is capable of producing ideas which directly affect the body. It reviews Deleuze's ‘deduction’ of the body and argues that his cinema project should be read as a new pedagogy of the image.

Keywords: body; Gilles Deleuze; Cinema 1; Cinema 2; ideas; pedagogy; image
