Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII. He is a key figure in poststructuralism, and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. In The Fold Deleuze proposes a new and radical way of understanding philosophy and art. Leibniz drew on the art of the baroque period in his invention of the concept of the fold; Deleuze develops the concept further to present a new way of practising philosophy based upon the fold as the relationship of difference with itself. Translated by Tom Conley.

Book News Annotation:

Gilles Deluze was a French philosopher in the tradition of Pascal, a poet, and a mathematician as well as a student of perception and ideas. He used his understanding of the work of Leibniz to explore the art of the Baroque and how our ways of perceiving existence can flow from one level to another; and he saw calculus as a door to a new point of view, and another, and another, on to infinity. Conley (romance languages and literature, Harvard) has translated Deluze's The Fold with the same rhythm and delicacy of the original. Endnotes explain some references but the excellent translation doesn't really require them. This is a revised edition of the 2001 publication.
