PHIL 8806 Deleuze: Image and Genesis of Thought (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

The aim of this seminar is to provide a way into Gilles Deleuze’s magnum opus, Difference and Repetition (1968), through a close reading of its third chapter (“The Image of Thought”). As a way of approaching that complex chapter, however, and introducing some of Deleuze’s key concepts, we’ll begin by reading a number of shorter texts, from his early review of Jean Hyppolite’s Logique et existence to his studies on Bergson, Nietzsche, Kant, Proust, and Plato. Students will be expected to give presentations of selected passages and report on previous seminars.
