"...a well-organized and accessible account of a difficult philosopher." - De Philosophia, Stephen B. Hawkins, University of Ottawa
"The trajectory May suggests for reading and understanding Deleuze is incisive and suggestive. We can only hope that in the near future we will see more of May's work on Deleuze, including a deeper and more thorough engagement with the problems that he so rightly and elegantly identifiies." - Ella Brians, The New School for Social Research
This book offers a readable and compelling introduction to the work of one of the twentieth century's most important and elusive thinkers. Other books have tried to explain Deleuze in general terms. Todd May organizes his book around a central question at the heart of Deleuze's philosophy: how might we live? The author then goes on to explain how Deleuze offers a view of the cosmos as a living thing that provides ways of conducting our lives that we may not have dreamed of.
