Deleuze and the Body

Nathan Widder

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter explores what should have been a formidable problem for studies of Gilles Deleuze from the start and addresses his reaffirmation of Hegelian theme that being is sense. It explains that in his The Logic of Sense, Deleuze clarified that sense itself is produced, which means that being has its origins outside of itself. The chapter traces the process by which Deleuze charted the relation between materiality and sense and between corporeality and incorporeality in his account of the dynamic genesis, and also analyses the influence of Melanie Klein's theory of childhood development on Deleuze's thought.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, sense, Hegelian theme, Logic of Sense, dynamic genesis, Melanie Klein, childhood development
