..., Gilles ( 1925–95 ) A French philosopher sometimes classified as a post-structuralist, though much of his work was inspired by Marxism and psychoanalytic theory. Sometimes writing with Felix Guattari, Deleuze’s grand analyses of advanced capitalist societies were critical of regimentation and valorized thought and practice that eluded and escaped it. His writings have been a major resource for human geographers writing about affect , non-representation theory , and a more-than-human ...

..., Gilles ( 1925–95 ). French philosopher whose earliest books included studies of Spinoza , Hume , Kant , and Bergson , each written from an angle sharply at odds with the received exegetical wisdom. Deleuze reads always with an eye to those ‘heretic’ doctrines—like Spinoza's ontology of bodily affects and forces or Hume's radical empiricism—which retain their power to provoke and disconcert. Hence also his attraction to Nietzsche (the subject of another expository tour de force ). In Différence et répétition and Logique du sens he came as near...

..., Gilles ( 1925–95 ). One of France's most versatile contemporary philosophers; his interests are particularly wide‐ranging. His early work ( 1953–67 ) is concerned primarily with original studies of a number of major philosophers, including Nietzsche , Kant , Bergson , and Spinoza . The middle period ( 1967–80 ) is the most controversial, as Deleuze turned his attention to literature ( Proust , Kafka , Tournier , and Zola , amongst others) and psychoanalysis , allying himself with the radical anti‐Freudian analyst Félix Guattari in a...

..., Gilles ( 1925–95 ) French philosopher whose thought is defined by movement, displacement, difference, and multiplicity. His collaboration with the anti‐Freudian psychoanalyst Félix Guattari in the 1970s produced the two‐volume study Capitalisme et schizophrénie ( Anti‐Oedipus , trans. Robert Hurley , Mark Seem , and Helen R. Lane , 1977 ), which examines the impact of the dynamic, disruptive power of capitalism on the individual. Like the multiple and non‐hierarchical (or ‘rhizomic’) growth he theorizes in the second volume of the study, Mille...

..., Gilles ( 1925–95 ) Sorbonne-educated and based in Paris for most of his career, Deleuze started as a historian of philosophy, writing about Hume, Spinoza, and Nietzsche. Later work, particularly in collaboration with Félix Guattari, branched into psychoanalysis, politics, film and literary theory. He stood for a general opposition to ‘essentialism’ in favour of a holistic and process orientated conception of the world. In conjunction with this went a view of the philosopher as someone who creates concepts with which to approach this flux, rather...

..., Gilles ( 1925–1995 ) One of the major philosophers of the latter half of the twentieth century and, with Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida , a leader of French poststructuralism . Deleuze has had a significant and, in the Anglo-American world, still growing impact on social theory. Much of his work is devoted to reconstructing a philosophical tradition organized around the concept of becoming rather than being —i.e., around the refusal of static systems, transcendental truths, and restrictive theories of the subject and psychology. This...
