schema:description"Gilles Deleuze's publications have attracted enormous interest, but scant attention has been paid to the existential relevance of his writings. In the lineage of Friedrich Nietzsche, this book develops a fully affirmative Deleuzean aesthetics of existence. For Michel Foucault and Alexander Nehamas, the challenge of an aesthetics of existence is to make your life, in one way or another, a work of art. In contrast, the book argues that art is too narrow a concept to guide this kind of existential project. It turns instead to the more generous notion of beauty, but argues that the philosophical tradition has mostly misconceived beauty in terms of perfection."
