Deleuze's Philosophical Lineage

Ronald Bogue

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter investigates the influence of Sigmund Freud on Gilles Deleuze's philosophical thought. It explains that Deleuze was intrigued with the possibilities offered by Freud for the creative reconfiguration of philosophical issues, and that he took up several Freudian concepts and gave them a prominent position in his thought. The chapter argues that whatever the shortcomings Deleuze saw in Freud and the Freudian psychoanalytic movement, they provided him with the key insight that desire and the unconscious are fundamental constituents of thought.

Keywords:   Sigmund Freud, Gilles Deleuze, philosophical issues, Freudian concepts, philosophical thought, psychoanalytic movement
