Gilles Deleuze is widely regarded as one of the major post-war proponents of Nietzschean thought in continental philosophy. Over a period of forty years, he presented what amounts to a philosophy of vitalism and multiplicity, bringing together concepts from thinkers as diverse as Nietzsche and Hume.
In the first comprehensive English-language introduction to Deleuze, John Marks offers a lucid reading of a complex, abstract and often perplexing body of work. Marks examines Deleuze's philosophical writings - as well as the political and aesthetic preoccupation which underpinned his thinking - and provides a rigourous and illuminating reading of Deleuze's early studies of Hume, Nietzsche, Kant, Bergson and Spinoza, his collaborations with Felix Guattari, and the development of a distinctively 'Deleuzian' conceptual framework.
Marks focuses on the philosophical friendship that developed between Deleuze and Foucault and considers the full range of Deleuze's fascinating writings on literature, art and cinema. This is a clear and concise guide to the work of one of the twentieth century's most influential thinkers.

Gilles Deleuze (1925–1995)
Gilles Deleuze January 18, —November 4, was one of the most influential and prolific French philosophers of the second half of the twentieth century. Deleuze also produced studies in the history of philosophy on Hume, Nietzsche, Kant, Bergson, Spinoza, Foucault, and Leibniz , and on the arts a two- volume study of the cinema, books on Proust and Sacher-Masoch, a work on the painter Francis Bacon, and a collection of essays on literature. Deleuze considered these latter works as pure philosophy, and not criticism, since he sought to create the concepts that correspond to the artistic practices of painters, filmmakers, and writers. Their final collaboration was What is Philosophy? It is this metaphysics that interests me. Deleuze was born in Paris to conservative, middle-class parents, who sent him to public schools for his elementary education; except for one year of school in Normandy during the Occupation, he lived in the same section of Paris his entire life. His personal life was unremarkable; he remained married to the same woman he wed at age 31, Fanny Denise Paul Grandjouan, a French translator of D.
Gilles Deleuze: Vitalism and Multiplicity
Deleuze is a key figure in postmodern French philosophy. Considering himself an empiricist and a vitalist, his body of work, which rests upon concepts such as multiplicity, constructivism, difference, and desire, stands at a substantial remove from the main traditions of 20th century Continental thought. His thought locates him as an influential figure in present-day considerations of society, creativity and subjectivity. Notably, within his metaphysics he favored a Spinozian concept of a plane of immanence with everything a mode of one substance, and thus on the same level of existence. He argued, then, that there is no good and evil, but rather only relationships which are beneficial or harmful to the particular individuals. This ethics influences his approach to society and politics, especially as he was so politically active in struggles for rights and freedoms.
