Description - The Brain is the Screen: Deleuze and the Philosophy of Cinema by Gregory Flaxman

The first broad-ranging collection on Deleuze s essential works on cinema. In the nearly twenty years since their publication, Gilles Deleuze s books about cinema have proven as daunting as they are enticing a new aesthetics of film, one equally at home with Henri Bergson and Wim Wenders, Friedrich Nietzsche and Orson Welles, that also takes its place in the philosopher s immense and difficult oeuvre. With this collection, the first to focus solely and extensively on Deleuze s cinematic work, the nature and reach of that work finally become clear. Composed of a substantial introduction, twelve original essays produced for this volume, and a new English translation of a personal, intriguing, and little-known interview with Deleuze on his cinema books, The Brain Is the Screen is a sustained engagement with Deleuze s cinematic philosophy that leads to a new view of the larger confrontation of philosophy with cinematic images.Contributors: Eric Alliez, U of Vienna; Dudley Andrew, U of Iowa; Peter Canning; Tom Conley, Harvard U; Andras Balint Kovacs, ELTE U, Budapest; Gregg Lambert, Syracuse U; Laura U.
