This dictionary is dedicated to the work of Gilles Deleuze, providing an in-depth introduction to a leading figure in continental philosophy. It defines and contextualises more than 150 terms that relate to Deleuze's philosophy: the key terms and concepts, his influences, and his influence in turn on feminism, cinema, postcolonial theory, geography and cultural studies. A user-friendly reference for both scholars and newcomers, both as a study and/or a teaching aid. In this revised edition, there are expanded entries on architecture, cinema and psychoanalysis - key areas where interest in Deleuze has grown in recent years.
Adrian Parr is Professor of Critical Theory at the University of Cincinnati. She is the editor of The Deleuze Dictionary (EUP, 2005), and with Ian Buchanan of Deleuze and the Contemporary World (EUP, 2006). She is the author of Exploring the Work of Leonardo da Vinci within the Context of Contemporary Philosophical Thought and Art (Edwin Mellen Press, 2003).
