Gilles Deleuze, a major figure in the intellectual history of the late-20th century, inaugurated the radical non-Hegelianism that has marked French intellectual life during the past three decades.

Stopped reading this book seriously when I reached page 51:
"As Kant taught us, though there is a beyond to knowledge: "We think the will to power in a form distinct from that in which we know it." which I read as a pro-transcendent realm conclusion to draw...clear enough right?

Hardt explicates the thought of Deleuze - not Deleuze and Guattarri - by reconstructing Deleuze's works on Bergson, Nietzsche, and Spinoza.
