Deleuze's Philosophical Lineage

Arkady Plotnitsky

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter focuses on the influence of Bernhard Riemann on the mathematical philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, explaining that mathematics played a major role in Deleuze's thought and suggesting that Riemann may have been the most significant mathematical influence on Deleuze. It argues that Deleuze took advantage of both Riemann's mathematical and philosophical concepts in building his own philosophical concepts, and that the relationship between Riemann and Deleuze not only represents a remarkable conjunction of mathematics and philosophy but also establishes a philosophical friendship.

Keywords:   Bernhard Riemann, Gilles Deleuze, mathematical philosophy, mathematics, philosophical concept, philosophical friendship
