The priority of events : Deleuze's logic of sense

book
posted on 2011-01-01, 00:00 authored by Sean BowdenSean Bowden
© Sean Bowden, 2011. This book shows how the Deleuzian event should be understood in terms of the broader metaphysical thesis that substances are ontologically secondary with respect to events. It achieves this through a reconstruction of Deleuzes relation to the history of thought from the Stoics through to Simondon, taking account of Leibniz, Lautman, structuralism and psychoanalysis along the way. This new reading of Deleuze focuses firmly on his approach to events. It also examines and clarifies a number of Deleuzes most difficult philosophical concepts, including sense, problematic Ideas and intensive individuation, and engages with material by Lautman and Simondon that has not yet been translated into English.
