In 1988 the philosopher Gilles Deleuze remarked that, throughout his career, he had always been 'circling around' a concept of nature. Providing critical analysis of his highly original readings of Stoicism, Aristotle, and Epicurus, this book shows that it is Deleuze's interpretations of ancient Greek physics that provide the key to understanding his conception of nature. Using the works of Aristotle, Plato, Chrysippus, and Epicurus, Michael Bennett traces the development of Deleuze's key concepts of event, difference, and problem. Arguing that it is difficult, if not impossible, to fully understand these ideas without an appreciation of Deleuze's Hellenistic influences, Deleuze and Ancient Greek Physics situates his commentaries in the context of contemporary scholarship on ancient Greek philosophy. Delving into the original Greek and Latin texts, this book shows that Deleuze's readings are more complex and controversial than they first appear, simultaneously advancing Deleuze as a new voice in interpretations of ancient Greek philosophy. Generating both new critical analyses of Deleuze and a new appreciation for his classical erudition, Deleuze and Ancient Greek Physics will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in ancient Greek philosophy, Deleuze's philosophical project or his unique methodology in the history of philosophy.

Engages with the post-Darwinian biology central to Deleuze and Guattari's ecological form of thought Deleuze and Evolutionary Theory gathers together contributions by many of the central theorists in Deleuze studies who have led the way in breaking down the boundaries between philosophical and biological research. They focus on the significance of Deleuze and Guattari's engagements with evolutionary theory across the full range of their work, from the interpretation of Darwin in Difference and Repetition, to the symbiotic alliances of wasp and orchid in A Thousand Plateaus. In this way, they explore the anthropological, social and biopolitical significance of the convergences and divergences between philosophy and evolutionary science.

Political Physics crosses the work of two of the most influential thinkers at the start of the 21st century, Jacques Derrida and Gilles Deleuze. The book takes the reader on a transversal journey -- employing Derridean analysis of the history of philosophy, Deleuzian creative dialogue and complexity theory -- to cross the boundaries of philosophy and science. Political Physics opens with Derridean readings of the "forceful body politic" in Husserl, Hegel, "the gift of life", and AIDS. Here, Derrida's concern with metaphysics is developed alongside Deleuze's critique of "hylomorphism" -- the doctrine that production is the imposition of order on chaos. The second part of the book presents Derridean readings of the Deleuzian concept of the "organized body politic" in Plato, Aristotle, Heidegger and Kant. Political Physics opens a new future for philosophy by revealing the way complexity theory shows the order and creativity inherent in matter itself. Copyright © Libri GmbH. All rights reserved.

This interdisciplinary study explores the relationship between play and mimesis in the constitution and dissolution of the individual and social self. The volume is divided into three sections, the first of which focuses on the mimetic-ludic foundations of mind, memory, and desire; the second on the social and psychological self as agent of playful performance and product of cultural codes; and the third on the interplay of psyche, image, and power in literary and artistic representations of the self. The subjects of the individual studies vary widely, from the interrelation of power and play in Orlando Furioso to the ludic foundations of cognition to the concept of the self in Foucault and Deleuze.

More than any other 20th-century philosopher, Deleuze considers himself an apprentice to the history of philosophy. But scholarship has ignored one of the more formative influences on Deleuze: Lucretian atomism. Deleuze's encounter with Lucretius sparked a way of thinking that resonates throughout all his writings: from immanent ontology to affirmative ethics, from dynamic materialism to the generation of thought itself. Filling a significant gap in Deleuze Studies, Ryan J. Johnson tells the story of the Deleuze-Lucretius encounter that begins and ends with a powerful claim: Lucretian atomism produced Deleuzianism.

Mit diesem 1957 von Gilles Deleuze zusammengestellten Band, der in einer kongenialen Aneinanderreihung von Textpassagen aus allen wichtigen Werken Bergsons einen guten Überblick über das Bergsonsche Denken vermittelt, begann die Wiederentdeckung Bergsons in Frankreich nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg. Dabei wird sichtbar, dass es neben der Intuition, dem Gedächtnis und dem *élan vital* vor allem die Dauer ist, die begrifflich im Mittelpunkt von Bergsons Philosophie steht. Sämtliche Texte wurden von Margarethe Drewsen einheitlich neu übersetzt; der Band lässt sich dadurch wie eine kompakte Einführung aus Bergsons eigener Feder lesen.

Schlechte Unendlichkeit

Das systematische Problem "schlechter Unendlichkeit", als dessen Überwindung die hegelsche Philosophie angetreten ist und das als solches weit über seinen Ursprung im Deutschen Idealismus hinausgeht, wird in dieser Arbeit rekonstruiert. Bereits bei Hegel bleibt die Beschreibung dieser Figur eines scheiternden affirmativen Selbstbezugs im Verstandesdenken nicht auf ihre logische Struktur beschränkt, ihre ganze Tragweite zeigt sich erst in der kritischen Anwendung auf die ethische Dimension des moralischen Sollens und die ästhetische Tradition des Erhabenen. In der Kritik Schellings und Kierkegaards findet jene Figur wiederum eine Anwendung auf ihren Urheber: Nicht nur würde Hegel an einer wirklichen Lösung dieses Problems scheitern; sein Modell einer wahren Unendlichkeit, damit auch sein geschichtliches Denken als solches, sei das Ende einer wahren Ethik und der eigenen Berechtigung des Einzelnen in seiner wirklichen Existenz.
