Nietzsche and Philosophy (Columbia Classics in Philosophy) (Paperback)
Nietzsche and Philosophy has long been recognized as one of the most important accounts of Nietzsche's philosophy, acclaimed for its rare combination of scholarly rigour and imaginative interpretation. Yet this is more than a major work on Nietzsche: the book opened a whole new avenue in post-war thought. Here Deleuze shows how Nietzsche began a new way of thinking which breaks with the dialectic as a method and escapes the confines of philosophy itself.
Gilles Deleuze was professor of philosophy at the University of Paris, Vincennes St. Denis. He is the author of Difference and Repitition, Empiricism and Subjectivity, Logic of Sense, Negotiations 1972-1990, and Why Philosophy? (with Felix Guattari)-- all published in the European Perspectives series.Hugh Tomlinson, the translator, studied at the University of Paris, attending Deleuze's seminars.
