History and Becoming : Deleuze's Philosophy of Creativity

History and Becoming : Deleuze's Philosophy of Creativity

Description

Explores the nature and relation of history and becoming in the work of Gilles Deleuze. How are we to understand the process of transformation, the creation of the new, and its relation to what has come before? In History and Becoming, Craig Lundy puts forward a series of fresh and provocative responses to this enduring problematic. Through an analysis of Gilles Deleuze's major solo works and his collaborations with Felix Guattari, he demonstrates how history and becoming work together in driving novelty, transmutation and experimentation. What emerges from this exploration is a new way of thinking about history and the vital role it plays in bringing forth the future. Key features * Provides a novel approach to and appreciation of Deleuze's philosophy of creativity * Demonstrates the importance of history to Deleuze's conception of becoming * Charts the relation of history and becoming throughout Deleuze's corpus * Shows how history can be creative, virtual and nonlinear
