Thinking between Deleuze and Merleau-Ponty is the first book-length examination of the relation between these two major thinkers of the twentieth century. Questioning the dominant view that the two have little of substance in common, Judith Wambacq brings them into a compelling dialogue to reveal a shared, historically grounded concern with the transcendental conditions of thought. Both Merleau-Ponty and Deleuze propose an immanent ontology, differing more in style than in substance. Wambacq's synthetic treatment is nevertheless critical; she identifies the limitations of each thinker's approach to immanent transcendental philosophy and traces its implications-through their respective relationships with Bergson, Proust, Cezanne, and Saussure-for ontology, language, artistic expression, and the thinking of difference. Drawing on primary texts alongside current scholarship in both French and English, Thinking between Deleuze and Merleau-Ponty is comprehensive and rigorous while remaining clear, accessible, and lively. It is certain to become the standard text for future scholarly discussion of these two major influences on contemporary thought.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Wambacq's book breaks new ground in scholarship on Deleuze, Merleau-Ponty, and Continental philosophy in general. Well written, well organized, lucid, and insightful, it will open new lines of scholarly investigation." -- David Morris, author of The Sense of Space
"Thinking between Deleuze and Merleau-Ponty provides us with the most complete comparison of the two philosophers' thought. This is an impressive investigation. It brings forth a Deleuze and a Merleau-Ponty that we have not seen before: a Merleau-Ponty devoted to immanence and a Deleuze who is a genuine transcendental philosopher. Both Merleau-Ponteans and Deleuzians will come away from this study having seen something new." -- Leonard Lawlor, Sparks Professor of Philosophy, Pennsylvania State University
