welcome

Letter From The Team We are so excited to share our latest books with you. Many create new philosophy from the great thinkers of the past, from Thomas Nail’s rereading of De Rerum Natura in Lucretius I (page 35) to Didier Debaise’s radical new philosophy of experience and speculation based on Whitehead’s Process and Reality in Speculative Empiricism (page 7). Artists and aestheticians will want to discover Speculative Art Histories edited by Sjoerd van Tuinen (page 63) and Practising with Deleuze (page 37) by Suzie Attiwill, Terri Bird, Andrea Eckersley, Antonia Pont, Jon Roffe and Philipa Rothfield. Film–philosophers should look out for Acinemas, our new collection that brings together scholarship by and about Jean-François Lyotard (page 66). Deleuzians will be delighted that the long-awaited A Thousand Plateaus and Philosophy, edited by Henry Somers-Hall, Jeffrey A. Bell and James Williams, is finally here: find out more on page 37. Our contributions to scholarship continue to expand into new areas, with two series publishing their first volumes this academic year: we welcome Affects, Actions and Passions in Spinoza by Chantal Jaquet in the Spinoza series (page 26) and The Edinburgh Critical History of Nineteenth-Century Christian Theology edited by Daniel Whistler in The Edinburgh Critical History of Christian Theology (page 69).

Deleuze Studies

A Thousand Plateaus and Philosophy Edited by Henry Somers-Hall, Royal Holloway, University of London, Jeffrey A. Bell, Southeastern Louisiana University, and James Williams, Deakin University

A collaborative close reading of A Thousand Plateaus by some of the world’s leading Deleuze and Guattari scholars Deleuze considered his collaborations with Guattari to surpass his earlier sole-authored works. A Thousand Plateaus and Philosophy brings a renewed focus on the philosophical significance of Deleuze and Guattari’s later work, bringing together 15 leading international scholars in a truly collaborative close reading of A Thousand Plateaus. Each contributor addresses a different plateau, relating Deleuze and Guattari’s text to their own specific philosophical interests. The collection combines an overview of the work with deep scholarship from those at the forefront of research on Deleuze and Guattari. Paperback £26.99 | $41.95 January 2018 320 pages 9780748697281 Also available in Hardback, Ebook

Practising with Deleuze Design, Dance, Art, Writing, Philosophy Suzie Attiwill, RMIT University School of Architecture and Design, Terri Bird, Monash University, Andrea Eckersley, RMIT University, Antonia Pont, Deakin University, Jon Roffe, University of New South Wales, and Philipa Rothfield, La Trobe University

The first systematic reading of Gilles Deleuze’s mature philosophy through the lens of creative practice Six authors – two fine artists, a dancer, a creative writer, a designer and a philosopher – participate in the first systematic reading of Gilles Deleuze’s mature philosophy through the lens of creative practice. Practising with Deleuze is focused around key aspects of production: forming, framing, experiencing, encountering and practising. These multiple dialogues reflect the engagement of contemporary creative practices with the generative philosophy of Deleuze. Paperback £19.99 | $29.95 October 2017 232 pages 10 colour illustrations 9781474429351 Also available in Hardback, Ebook
