Editorial Reviews


Deleuze's treatment of the importance of the imagination in Hume's philosophy, together with the value of the associative mechanism, is highly commendable.

(Auslegung) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.


Anticipates much of Deleuze's own thought -- his discussions of identity, difference, repretition, sense, totality, imagination...For those concerned to see the emergence of a distinctive contemporary thought (as Foucault termed it: 'the age of Deleuze'), this book is essential

(David Allison, State University of New York at Stony Brook) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this book the author has against the traditional approach a return at philosophycal questions. It is interesting too see as Deleuze produces his frame-work also by a psycological view.
But here his attention is particularly related in the traditional sense at ethics. He offers a typical frame for studying the model of modernity, posing a construction of deductions. This operation of deductions and inductions makes it part of a successions of trials, which makes so sense in those actions related to the philosophiycal sistem.

Format: Paperback
an excellent intro to deleuze. the book speaks of motivation, subjectivity, and habit, praising hume's empiricism and theory of mind. latter deleuze texts are oft' full of fanciful prose, but this one is clear and concise. the thesis: the blank slate, nothing is innate, except habit. the habit of habit.
