Description:
  • Reconstructs Deleuze's philosophy as transcendental empiricism: two philosophies previously seen as contradictory. <p>Deleuze's readings of Hume, Spinoza, Bergson and Nietzsche respond to philosophical critiques of classical and modern empiricism. However, Deleuze's arguments against those critiques – by Kant, Hegel, Husserl and Heidegger – consolidate the philosophy of immanence that can be called 'transcendental empiricism'.</p><p>Marc Rölli offers us a detailed examination of Gilles Deleuze's philosophy of transcendental empiricism. He demonstrates that Deleuze takes up and radicalises the empiricist school of thought developing a systematic alternative to the mainstreams of modern continental philosophy.</p>
