"One day, perhaps, this century will be Deleuzian," Michel Foucault once wrote. Thisbook anthologizes 40 texts and interviews written over 20 years by renowned French philosopherGilles Deleuze, who died in 1995. The early texts, from 1953-1966 (on Rousseau, Kafka, Jarry, etc.),belong to literary criticism and announce Deleuze's last book, Critique and Clinic (1993). Butphilosophy clearly predominates in the rest of the book, with sharp appraisals of the thinkers healways felt indebted to: Spinoza, Bergson. More surprising is his acknowledgement of Jean-PaulSartre as his master. "The new themes, a certain new style, a new aggressive and polemical way ofraising questions," he wrote, "come from Sartre." But the figure of Nietzsche remains by far themost seminal, and the presence throughout of his friends and close collaborators, Felix Guattari andMichel Foucault. The book stops shortly after the publication of Anti-Oedipus, and presents a kindof genealogy of Deleuze's thought as well as his attempt to leave philosophy and connect it to theoutside -- but, he cautions, as a philosopher.
