Focuses on Deleuze's style, his conception of the self, and his understanding of philosophy's relationship to the arts.

Ronald Bogue, author of the first book in English on French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, brings together eight of his essays written since Deleuze's death in 1995. The essays serve as tributes to Deleuze's thought and contribute to the wider dissemination of his ideas, especially as they relate to the aesthetic dimension of his work. Bogue explores how Deleuze views philosophy and the arts as complementary spheres of creative activity that produce new ways of thinking, perceiving, and feeling. Discussing the broader implications of Deleuze's texts, the book addresses questions of style, writing, language, cinema, painting, music, politics, religion, and philosophy.

“Bogue offers eight eclectic essays, tributaries of Deleuzian thought, written before and after Deleuze’s defenestrations of 1995. They address topics of interest to a wide range of readers … Like all of Bogue’s work, they are blessedly readable … The reader will return to Deleuze’s Wake repeatedly, not having exhausted [the] potency in one pass.” — Philosophy in Review

"Bogue's book is lucid, his interpretive insights are sharp, and he shows how passages in Deleuze's texts that were considered impenetrable make excellent sense." — Constantin V. Boundas, coeditor of Gilles Deleuze and the Theater of Philosophy

"Bogue shows a special sensitivity to Deleuze's style and to Deleuze's understanding of 'postmodernism' and Foucault. He also gives interpretations of Deleuze's work on music and religion that have not been explored fruitfully elsewhere. This book will be read and discussed widely." — John Carvalho, Villanova University
