The final work of this essential thinker.

Essays Critical and Clinical is the final work of the late Gilles Deleuze, one of the most important and vital figures in contemporary philosophy. It includes essays, all newly revised or published here for the first time, on such diverse literary figures as Herman Melville, Walt Whitman, D. H. Lawrence, T. E. Lawrence, Samuel Beckett, Leopold von Sacher-Masoch, Alfred Jarry, and Lewis Carroll, as well as philosophers such as Plato, Spinoza, Kant, Nietzsche, and Heidegger.

For Deleuze, every literary work implies a way of living, a form of life, and must be evaluated not only critically but also clinically. As Proust said, great writers invent a new language within language, but in such a way that language in its entirety is pushed to its limit or its own “outside.” This outside of language is made up of affects and precepts that are not linguistic, but which language alone nonetheless makes possible. In Essays Critical and Clinical, Deleuze is concerned with the delirium-the process of Life-that lies behind this invention, as well as the loss that occurs, the silence that follows, when this delirium becomes a clinical state. Taken together, these eighteen essays present a profoundly new approach to literature by one of the greatest twentieth-century philosophers.

Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was professor of philosophy at the University of Paris, Vincennes-St. Denis. With Félix Guattari, he coauthored Anti-Oedipus (1983), A Thousand Plateaus (1987), and Kafka (1986). He was also the author of The Fold (1993), Cinema 1 (1986), Cinema 2 (1989), Foucault (1988), and Kant’s Critical Philosophy (1985). All of these books were published in English by the University of Minnesota Press.

Daniel W. Smith has also translated Deleuze’s Francis Bacon: The Logic of Sensation and Pierre Klossowski’s Nietzsche and the Vicious Circle, both of which are forthcoming.

Michael A. Greco is a photographer and freelance translator based in Paris.

Cites background from "Essays Critical and Clinical"

... To conclude this essay on a slightly different note, I want to develop Deleuze’s description of the relationship between body and mind here, to argue that extrapolating from its logic that affect is autonomous, as Massumi does, is a misreading. Deleuze is not critiquing linearity per se, but what we understand as the components of linearity. If judgement is always secondary to bodily response, poised above it, but crucially tied to it, the intensity of that response must also presumably be curtailed or extended by that judgement, forming an affective cycle in which each element has the capacity to affect (intensify or diminish) the other. Deleuze has offered us a snapshot of frozen time, a single moment of judgement, but this is a moment only, and one that does in fact take place within a larger passage of time. Judgement links the body and the social and gives both interpretative meaning. The ‘maps of intensity’ that Deleuze would have us draw up in our desire to understand the individual are the shifts from one component to the next, one affective cycle to the next (1997, p. 64). Thus, ‘maps of intensity’ are maps of individual life and meaning in time, perhaps even constituting time. They are certainly not outside time. To pursue this interpretation of Deleuze further, these affective cycles form patterns that are subject to reflective or political, rather than momentary or arbitrary judgement. Such affective cycles might be described not as a series of repeated moments / body /affect /emotion / a selfcontained phrase repeated in time, but as an ongoing, incrementally altering chain / body /affect /emotion /affect /body / doubling back upon the body and influencing the individual’s capacity to act in the world. In this context, reflective or political judgment provides an alternative to dominant social norms, but not because of affective autonomy. This reading indicates a return to Tomkins’ affect theory too, where it is the reinvigoration of previous affective states and their effects, rather than affective freedom, that allow us to make our bodies mean something that we recognize and value. To return to my discussion of Fanon and Lorde, it is clear that racially marked subject are not simply ‘sprawled out’ and ‘distorted’ (Fanon 1952, p. 80), but have a critical and affective life that resonates differently. So that over time, Audre Lorde’s critical judgement of the ongoing spiral of smaller cycles of shame in response to her body and to racism is of such intensity that she is able to remake the relationship between her body, affect and judgement to inflect the social world with other meanings. In The Cancer Journals , for example, a text that is almost definitional in tracing maps of intensity that fashion the individual other in relation to an other social world (1980), Lorde does not need to think of affect as asocial in order for her investments in survival to provide a different affective trajectory than the one that would deny her subjectivity. ...

... Deleuze (1997) proposes affect as distinct from emotion, as bodily meaning that pierces social interpretation, confounding its logic, and scrambling its expectations. ...
