Deleuze's Philosophical Lineage

Simon Duffy

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines Gilles Deleuze's engagement with the mathematical philosophy of Albert Lautman. It suggests that mathematical work which was drawn upon and played a significant role in Deleuze's philosophical project is that of Lautman, and explains that the speculative logic which Deleuze constructs as a part of his project of constructing a philosophy of difference is dialectical in the Lautmanian sense. The chapter provides an account of Lautmanian dialectic and evaluates how it operates in Lautman's work.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, mathematical philosophy, Albert Lautman, speculative logic, philosophy of difference, Lautmanian dialectic
