Deleuze and the Body

Philipa Rothfield

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines Gilles Deleuze's interpretation of Friedrich Nietzsche's thoughts about the body. It explains that according to Deleuze's Nietzsche, the body is a chance encounter of active and reactive forces whose temporary unity is underwritten by the will to power, and that nothing could make this clearer than the dancer's body, in its constant negotiation of forces. The chapter shows that there are many theories of the body, each with multiple connections and applications, each with a different productive capacity, and each expanding what the Deleuzian body can do.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Friedrich Nietzsche, body, chance encounter, dancer's body, multiple connections, productive capacity, Deleuzian body
