Deleuze and the Body puts the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze to work to trace the multiple lines of thought and affect that inhabit the ideas and attitudes to the body. It analyses how bodies are formed in certain relationships: to power, to creativity and to affectivity. The contributors use a variety of contemporary cultural, scientific and philosophical lines of enquiry to produce a truly multidisciplinary view of the Deleuzian body which makes us look afresh at art, movement, and literature.
