This title includes 17 essays by one of the world's leading commentators on the work of Gilles Deleuze. The articles in this volume have become frequent references for students and scholars working on Deleuze. In response to academic demand, we are now making them available in a single convenient volume. Several of the articles are touchstones in the field and a number of them have been often cited on the reception of French philosophy, especially the articles on Badiou and Derrida. It is an essential collection of essays that gets right to the heart of Deleuze's philosophy. It includes three new pieces, two of which were written specially for this collection 'The Open" and "Concepts, Truth and Time". It has exclusive focus on the philosophical themes of Deleuze's work. It analyses three important concepts used by Deleuze: the new, univocity, and the clinical. It contrasts Deleuze's work with that of four of his contemporaries: Derrida, Badiou, Lacan and Klossowski.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Daniel W. Smith's work on the great French philosopher Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) is owed a debt by English-speaking readers of Deleuze that is difficult to overstate ... Essays on Deleuze finally gathers this work together in a single volume, presenting these essays along a more unified trajectory that both records Smith's significant contribution to Deleuze studies while also laying foundations for new avenues of research... Throughout these essays Smith exhibits an uncanny knack for rendering intuitive some of the most obscure and vexing concepts and theses in Deleuze, to a point where the reader, upon receiving the instruction, is left wondering how the former confusion could have arisen... Essays on Deleuze clearly marks an important landmark in the study of Deleuze's philosophy, culminating a 15-year period of Smith's unique and highly influential readings of Deleuze."--Journal of French and Francophone Studies
