Badiou and Deleuze Read Literature

Jean-Jacques Lecercle

Edinburgh University Press

This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on Alain Badiou and Gilles Deleuze's mode of reading of literature, describing two philosophies of literature, conjoined and disjoined in disjunctive synthesis or two similar-yet-distinctive modes of reading literature philosophically. It suggests that the contrast between Badiou's philosophy of the event and Deleuze's vitalism determines both their style of writing and their writing about style.

Keywords:   Alain Badiou, Gilles Deleuze, reading, literature, disjunctive synthesis, philosophy, vitalism, writing style
