While Remaining on the Shore: Ethics in Deleuze's Encounter with Antonin Artaud

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Gilles Deleuze is perhaps best known for his influential works in philosophical interpretation, (Nietzsche and Philosophy, Expression in Philosophy: Spinoza); epistemology (The Logic of Sense); metaphysics (Difference and Repetition); and political economy (Capitalism and Schizophrenia). Because he never devoted an individual work to the subject of ethics, some scholars have assumed that Deleuze did not write about it, which explains in part why so few have directly addressed the ethical dimension of Deleuze's philosophy. Concepts such as ethics, values, and normativity however play a crucial - if subtle and easily overlooked - role in Deleuze's overall philosophical project. The essays in this collection explore, uncover, and trace the ethical dimension of Deleuzian philosophy along diverse trajectories and, in so doing, endeavour to reclaim that philosophy as moral philosophy.
