Deleuze and the Body
Deleuze and the Body puts the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze to work in thinking through the body. It traces the multiple lines of thought and affect that inhabit the ideas and attitudes of the body and analyzes how certain relationships to power, to creativity, and to affectivity form the body. Deleuzian analysis brings a new perspective to the approaches of Spinoza and Nietzsche. The Deleuzian body is not necessarily a human body, but the lines of enquiry illuminate the idea of the human body and thinking about formation, origins, and becoming. Contributors use a variety of contemporary cultural, scientific, and philosophical modes of enquiry to produce a truly multidisciplinary view of the Deleuzian body, which offers a fresh look at art, movement, and literature.
