Deleuze and Space by Ian Buchanan
Book DescriptionGilles Deleuze was arguably the twentieth century's most spatial philosopher - not only did he contribute a plethora of new concepts to engage space, space was his very means of doing philosophy. He said everything takes place on a plane of immanence, envisaging a vast desert-like space populated by concepts moving about like nomads. Deleuze made philosophy spatial and gave us the concepts of smooth and striated, nomadic and sedentary, deterritorialization and reterritorialization, the fold, as well as many others to enable us to think spatially. This collection takes up the challenge of thinking spatially by exploring Deleuze's spatial concepts in applied contexts: architecture, cinema, urban planning, political philosophy and metaphysics. In doing so, it brings together some of the most accomplished Deleuze scholars writing today - Reda Bensmaia, Ian Buchanan, Claire Colebrook, Tom Conley, Manuel DeLanda, Gary Genosko, Gregg Lambert and Nigel Thrift. Key Features *The first book of critical commentary on the diverse intellectual, philosophical, artistic and architectural responses Deleuze's work on space has provoked in the past decade * Includes work from leading figures in the field of Deleuze studies and introduces authoritative new voices * Students and scholars in the fields of art, architecture, urban studies and philosophy will find this an invaluable guide to the work of an author whose impact is already substantial and is likely to grow in the years to come * Written in a lucid, introductory style that will appeal to non-specialists
