Deleuze's Philosophical Lineage

Ian James

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the influence of French writer Pierre Klossowski on the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, explaining that Klossowski is a recurring point of reference for Deleuze, who repeatedly cited him as a key figure in the contemporary French reception of Nietzschean philosophy from 1966 onwards. Deleuze also devoted a full-length essay to Klossowski in the appendix to The Logic of Sense, and it is here that clues can be found as to his importance in relation to Deleuze's thinking of simulacrum, eternal return and loss of identity, and to his thinking of difference and repetition.

Keywords:   Pierre Klossowski, Gilles Deleuze, Nietzschean philosophy, Logic of Sense, simulacrum, eternal return, loss of identity, difference, repetition
