Deleuze and the History of Mathematics: In Defense of the 'New' (Bloomsbury Studies in Continental Philosophy)

By Simon Duffy

Gilles Deleuze's engagements with arithmetic, replete in his paintings, depend on the development of different lineages within the heritage of arithmetic, which problem a few of the self imposed limits that keep watch over the canonical suggestions of the self-discipline. For Deleuze, those demanding situations are a chance to reconfigure specific philosophical difficulties - for instance, the matter of individuation - and to improve new thoughts in accordance with them. The hugely unique learn provided during this booklet explores the mathematical development of Deleuze's philosophy, in addition to addressing the undervalued and infrequently overlooked query of the mathematical thinkers who encouraged his paintings.

In the wake of Alain Badiou's contemporary and likely devastating assault at the approach the relation among arithmetic and philosophy is configured in Deleuze's paintings, Simon Duffy deals a strong defence of the constitution of Deleuze's philosophy and, particularly, the adequacy of the mathematical difficulties utilized in its building. by way of reconciling Badiou and Deleuze's seeming incompatible engagements with arithmetic, Duffy succeeds in providing an exceptional starting place for Deleuze's philosophy, rebuffing the new demanding situations opposed to it.
