"a fascinating study of the similarities and differences between the two philosophers and in particular the ethical and political threads underlying their connection. "-Critical Horizons, September 2003
“This fine collection examines tensions and similarities between the views of Deleuze and Derrida…The articles take various approaches to these topics, and this results in interesting overlaps that nicely elucidate nuances and complexities in the thought of each philosopher, as well as their intellectual relationship….This book should be of value to theologians, philosophers of religious, and ethicists, as well as anyone interested in either Deleuze or Derrida.” –Religious Studies Review, 01/04 (George Aichele Religious Studies Review)
“…this is an important book, provoking us to explore what Delezue calls the zone of indiscernibility—the region lacking simple identity or opposotional difference—between these two important thinkers.” –Philosophy in Review, 12/03 (Jack Reynolds and Jon Roffe)

If Derrida and Deleuze appear to be strangers - despite having lived in Paris, it is because, as Agamben has claimed, they seem to be following two unlike intellectual trajectories, namely, that of "transcendence" with Derrida - and Levinas, and that of "immanence" with Deleuze - and Nietzsche, a tradition going back to Spinoza. Despite their differences, they both seem concerned with developing a non-Hegelian philosophy of difference, that is, a non-dialectical difference.
It is around such discussions that the collection is organized. In particular, Patton explores the ethico-political orientation with respect of the future with emphasis on the open construction of "future"; Lorraine further explores conceptualizations of "time" in Derrida and Deleuze. Smith follows Agamben's thesis and provides additional evidence, a claim that Lawlor skillfully counters. Alliez explores ways Plato has been understood by Derrida in 'Plato's Pharmacy' and Deleuze in 'Plato and the Simulacrum'. Plotnitsky identifies a common mathematical reference and inspiration although Derrida's approach is algebraic and Deleuze's is primarily geometric. With Lambert the concern is literature and re-presentation, a theme equally discussed by Arsic with reference to Melville. Nealon exposes the developments and inspirations found in cultural studies with an emphasis on the non-coincidence between language and that which it signifies, which Lingis sees as an opportunity to escape from interpretation. The closing paper by Protevi explores the notion "experience" in relation to "love": 'love as experience of aporia for Derrida' v. 'love as exercise in depersonalization for Deleuze' (p. 13).
Overall, a very important contribution to discussions surrounding Derrida and Deleuze, that is well edited and accessible.
