Gilles Deleuze: The Event of Life

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


How might we think about the death of the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze as we mark the 20th anniversary of his suicide? Or, to put it another way: If one’s death is simply a personal event in the chronological order of things — the inevitable unfolding of our limited time on earth — how might we now write about Deleuze’s life, his influence since his death, and the at times troubling canonization of Deleuze as a singular figure in the history of thought? It is tempting to go even further: What might be said about Deleuze today that hasn’t already been said many times before?
