First Edition

Allan J. Thomas

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Plateaus New Directions in Deleuze Studies

  • The first book to address Deleuze's Cinema books in terms of the specific philosophical problems he seeks to resolve, and can only resolve, by means of the cinema
  • Explores Deleuze's characterisation of the history of the cinema as a dramatisation of the history of philosophy
  • Shows how Deleuze draws on the cinema to construct a genetic account of thought that accounts for and overcomes the limits of human thought and philosophy
