Germinal Life: The Difference and Repetition of Deleuze

Synopsis

Germinal Life is the sequel to the highly successful Viroid Life . Where Viroid Life provided a compelling reading of Nietzsche's philosophy of the human, Germinal Life is an original and groundbreaking analysis of little known and difficult theoretical aspects of the work of French philosopher Gilles Deleuze.In particular, Keith Ansell Pearson provides fresh and insightful readings of Deleuze's work on Bergson and Deleuze's most famous texts Difference and Repetition and A Thousand Plateaus . Germinal Life also provides new insights into Deleuze's relation to some of the most original thinkers of modernity, from Darwin to Freud and Nietzsche, and explores the connections between Deleuze and more recent thinkers such as Adorno and Merleau-Ponty.

Excerpt

Readers should note that in many instances translations from the French and German have been modified (on most occasions only slightly) and this is indicated in the text only now and again. Full details of my references and sources can be found in the extensive bibliography provided at the end of the book. I am grateful to Melissa McMahon for allowing me to freely use her unpublished translation of Deleuze’s 1956 essay on Bergson and difference, a new version of which is to be published in John Mullarkey’s collection of essays The New Bergson (Manchester University Press, forthcoming).
