This book tries to understand something like the necessity of Gilles Deleuze's thought, something like that which, at the most fundamental level, motivates that thought, sets it in motion. It also determines something like the original impetus or the driving force behind his philosophy as a whole, behind, that is, even its most abrupt and radical changes, and its boldest innovations. The aim is to return to the source of Deleuze's thought. The source in question does not concur with Deleuze's philosophical beginnings, with his first attempts at writing philosophy. The source in question is determined in the later work, and used as a guiding thread through Deleuze's thought as a whole, illuminating it only retrospectively. The source of a thought indicates the virtual place from which it flows.
