Gilles Deleuze: An Apprenticeship in Philosophy

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. Many poststructuralist and postmodernist practices can be traced to Deleuze's 1962 resurrection of Nietzsche against Hegel. Hardt shows how Deleuze's early analysis of Bergson's ...more

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?

Not really, because on page 29... apparently Hardt's reading of Deleuze is that he's fundamentally opposed to the Kantian system because - "The principle fault of the Kantian critique is that of transcendental philosophy

A thorough and accessible explanation of the influence of Bergson, Nietzsche, and Spinoza on the Deleuze's most fundamental concepts. Bergson assists Deleuze in conceiving of difference as essential to, rather than accidental and exterior to, Being. Nietzsche provides Deleuze with the language of power which invigorates Being with ethical implication. Spinoza, arguably the most influential, supplies language of "common notions" as essential to the formation of assemblages which maximize and enha ...more

This excellent book traces the development in Deleuze's thought through his work on Bergson, Nietzsche and Spinoza. Through Bergson, Deleuze moves away from the Hegelian dialectic. In this, the critique of Hegel cannot be negative because it would flow back into a dialectic. Instead, this move needs to be a positive move, and we see Deleuze begin to develop a positive ontology. In Nietzsche we see this expand in a way that Deleuze is no longer anti-Hegelian, but rather post-Hegelian. In Nietzsch ...more

Hardt explicates the thought of Deleuze - not Deleuze and Guattarri - by reconstructing Deleuze's works on Bergson, Nietzsche, and Spinoza. Hardt does an excellent job of writing both about Deleuze's interpretations of these philosophers, as well as how these interpretations are synthesized into something original - namely, Deleuze's own philosophy.

I want to say that the book is difficult in some way - and it is. But Hardt's style is very clear, very simple, and his grasp not only of Deleuze bu
