This is the first dictionary dedicated to the work of Gilles Deleuze. It provides an in-depth and lucid introduction to one of the most influential figures in continental philosophy. The dictionary defines and contextualises more than 150 terms that relate to Deleuze's philosophy including concepts such as 'becoming', 'body without organs', 'deterritorialization' 'difference', 'repetition', 'rhizome' and 'schizoanalysis'. The clear explanations also address the main intellectual influences on Deleuze as well as the influence Deleuze has had on subjects such as feminism, cinema, postcolonial theory, geography and cultural studies. Those unfamiliar with Deleuze will find the dictionary a user-friendly tool equipping them with definitions and interpretations both as a study and/or a teaching aid. The entries are written by some of the most prominent Deleuze scholars including Rosi Braidotti, Claire Colebrook, Tom Conley, Eugene Holland and Paul Patton. These contributors bring their expert knowledge and critical opinion to bear on the entries and provide an enriching theoretical context for anyone interested in Deleuze.Key Features * The entries are written in jargon-free language by experts on Deleuze. * The book covers the key Deleuzian terms and concepts. * Taken together, the entries provide a comprehensive introduction for those unfamiliar with Deleuze. * Useful study aid and tool for students and teachers.

Review

What recommends this dictionary -- the only one dedicated to Deleuze's complex oeuvre -- and renders it especially suitable for students of all levels is that terms are analysed with concrete reference to particular philosophical, literary or other works. -- Marios Constantinou and Maria Margaroni The connections made in The Deleuze Dictionary are particularly thought provoking and productive. -- Marios Constantinou and Maria Margaroni As an additional navigational aid, most entries bear a short list of 'connectives', suggesting bridges towards other sections ... The reader initially uses them as trampolines into intersecting areas of Deleuze's thought, but then begins to invent his/her own bouncing-off points. The ability to prompt such creativity is one of the many merits of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life saver 11 Oct 2005
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Weird to have a dictionary on Deleuze surely? Well, maybe, but this book is quite simply a life saver. Without it, I would have run away from Deleuze & Guattari and back to the safe shelter of theories which are not as political, not as progressive, not as challenging. This book is the product of a magnanimous, public-spirited team of scholars who have served Deleuze's legacy no end of good.

5.0 out of 5 stars practical 27 Mar 2009
Format:Paperback
The idea of a Deleuze Dictionary might be controversial since Deleuzian concepts are never stable. This was the reason I stayed distanced from this book for a long time but could not help and bought it during my thesis. I was relieved to find that it is explanatory but not reductive. A rich selection of terms are clearly and efficiently explained with all its wideness of meaning by scholars specialised in that area of Deleuzian corpus. Highly recommended..

5.0 out of 5 stars Dictionary for Creative Use 6 Sep 2009
Format:Paperback
Deleuze presumes that being is creativity, keeping with Nietzsche's observation that the world is emotive and sensory. 'The Deleuze Dictionary' has helped me to study and write on literature in a new and more creative way, different from mimetic and structural approaches. The many entries, written by specialists, enables me to search for cross references and to find new approaches. I agree with the editor A. Parr in that this dictionary "comes to being in its use" - it produces infinite openings in your own thoughts of the work of art you are dealing with, closer to the fluxus of sensuality in the text.
