Editorial Reviews


"With Life Drawing: A Deleuzean Aesthetics of Existence we finally have the book on aesthetics that Gilles Deleuze, notwithstanding his frequent engagements with the arts, never wrote himself. The first sustained attempt not only to systematically explain Deleuze's views on aesthetics but also to put them into action, Bearn's book will surely become a major addition to the ever-growing scholarly library on Deleuze's seminal existence, Bearn ingeniously deterritorializes the language of existence away from the trappings of existentialist philosophy, and its obsession with 'authenticity,' and instead proposes to consider the problem of existence - the threat of life's 'pointlessness' - as one that is best understood as an aesthetic rather than moral problem. Life Drawing not only convincingly shows how Deleuze's work encourages us to affirm this 'pointlessness' but also performatively 'rides the wave' of pointlessness so that readers become affected by the very sensualized experience that Bearn identifies as the core of Deleuze's ideas about life; in so doing, Bearn transforms Deleuze's thought about life into a bona fide way of actually living it." - Marco Abel, University of Nebraska, author of Violent Affect "One can only admire the imagination and boldness of this book, qualities that are eminently in tune with the great philosophers upon whom the text draws." - Paul Standish, University of London
