"One day, perhaps, this century will be Deleuzian," Michel Foucault oncewrote. This book anthologizes 40 texts and interviews written over 20 years byrenowned French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, who died in 1995. The early texts, from1953-1966 (on Rousseau, Kafka, Jarry, etc.), belong to literary criticism andannounce Deleuze's last book, Critique and Clinic (1993). But philosophy clearlypredominates in the rest of the book, with sharp appraisals of the thinkers healways felt indebted to: Spinoza, Bergson. More surprising is his acknowledgement ofJean-Paul Sartre as his master. "The new themes, a certain new style, a newaggressive and polemical way of raising questions," he wrote, "come from Sartre."But the figure of Nietzsche remains by far the most seminal, and the presencethroughout of his friends and close collaborators, Felix Guattari and MichelFoucault. The book stops shortly after the publication of Anti-Oedipus, and presentsa kind of genealogy of Deleuze's thought as well as his attempt to leave philosophyand connect it to the outside -- but, he cautions, as a philosopher.
