Gilles Deleuze was one of the most influential French philosophers of the last century. Michel Foucault famously suggested that the 20th century would be known as "Deleuzian." Thinkers, such as Jameson, Badiou and Negri all acknowledge his work as a profound influence. Peter Hallward's new book challenges the hegemony of Deleuze's work, aiming to go right to the heart of his philosophy. It engages with the central idea that informs virtually all his work: the assertion of an unlimited creative power. Exploring the ways in which Deleuze dissolves anything that might inhibit the expression of this creativity, Hallward accuses Deleuze of being a spiritual and "other-worldly" philosopher, rather than a theorist of material complexity and difference. Hallward argues that the problems of conflict and solidarity are effectively dismissed in Deleuze's work - as is the possibility of any political transformation. This powerful and thorough critique shows once and for all that the Deleuzian century is over.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a timely, provocative and remarkably engaging interpretation of Deleuze, based on an impressive mastery of his work. It is clearly written and exceptionally accessible, and should appeal as much to readers new to Deleuze's philosophy as to those already familiar with his work. --Daniel W. Smith
