5.0 out of 5 stars Non-sense, 24 Nov. 2010

This review is from: The Logic of Sense (Continuum Impacts): 10 (Paperback)
As there is no review for this book yet, I thought I'd write a short one, just outlining the main ideas and layout of the book.

This books draws heavily on Lewis Carroll's works on Alice (of Wonderland fame) and Carroll's playful and intelligent use of nonsense, linking it with Stoic philosophy. As is mentioned in the product description, Deleuze also tackles schizophrenia and psychoanalysis in his explanation of the logic of Sense.

It is divided into chapters which are called "series" and generally they around two to four pages long each, dealing with particular issues in each (for example, chapter one introduces the notion of "pure becoming" - a paradox which is explained by Alice's 'becoming larger, and becoming smaller' at the same time).

An appendix deals with Simulacra and other ideas.

The cover of the book features everybody's favourite Queen of Hearts, amongst other cards, and looks really good.

Overall, this Continuum edition is a decent copy of a good book by a remarkable author. Worth buying.

It's great. Deleuze considers the Stoics. In contrast, the reading of 20th century psychology toward the end of the book suggests an amusing and defunct historical artefact.
