This introductory chapter explains the theme of this book, which is about the relevance of Gilles Deleuze's pragmatic philosophy for the contemporary world. The collection of essays in this volume use Deleuzian concepts to describe, analyse, critique and evaluate the tone, timbre, and rhythm of the contemporary world. They push Deleuzism to the limit and, in their combination, encourage us to take risks in our thinking and to disturb our comfort zones. Some of the contemporary issues addressed by the essays include the problems of solidarity, militarism, citizenship, immigration, and colonisation.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, pragmatic philosophy, contemporary world, essays, Deleuzism, solidarity, militarism, citizenship, immigration, colonisation
