about

At last available in paperback, this book anticipates and explains the post-structuralist turn to empiricism. Presenting a challenging reading of David Hume's philosophy, the work is invaluable for understanding the progress of Deleuze's thought.

Gilles Deleuze was professor of philosophy at the Université de Paris VIII until his retirement in 1987. His books include Nietzsche and Philosophy, Dialogues, and The Logic of Sense, all published by Columbia.

Editorial Reviews

Deleuze's treatment of the importance of the imagination in Hume's philosophy, together with the value of the associative mechanism, is highly commendable.
