|Responsibility:||Gilles Deleuze ; with an introduction by John Rajchman ; translated by Anne Boyman.|
"Announced in his very first book on Hume, then pursued in his early studies of Nietzsche and Bergson and in his later "clinical" essays, the issue of an "empiricist conversion" was central to Deleuze's thinking, in particular to his aesthetics and his conception of the art of cinema. For Deleuze such a conversion, such an empiricism, such a new art and will-to-art was, in fact, what was most needed in the new regime of communication and information-machines. The last seemingly minor question of "a life" is thus inseparable from Deleuze's striking image of philosophy not as a wisdom we already possess, but as a pure immanence of what is yet come.
Pure Immanence exposes the new and urgent problems such a philosophy confronts today, one whose most difficult task, the invention of "a life," has yet to be achieved."--Jacket.
