A cutting edge volume in the important series on Deleuzian philosophy Gilles Deleuze was arguably the twentieth century's most spatial philosopher - t only did he contribute a plethora of new concepts to engage space, space was his very means of doing philosophy. He said everything takes place on a plane of immanence, envisaging a vast desert-like space populated by concepts moving about like mads. Deleuze made philosophy spatial and gave us the concepts of smooth and striated, madic and sedentary, deterritorialization and reterritorialization, the fold, as well as many others to enable us to think spatially. This collection takes up the challenge of thinking spatially by exploring Deleuze's spatial concepts in applied contexts: architecture, cinema, urban planning, political philosophy and metaphysics. In doing so, it brings together some of the most accomplished Deleuze scholars writing today - Reda Bensmaia, Ian Buchanan, Claire Colebrook, Tom Conley, Manuel DeLanda, Gary Gesko, Gregg Lambert and Nigel Thrift. A volume in the Deleuze Connections series, edited by Ian Buchanan. Other titles in the series include Deleuze and Feminist Theory, Deleuze and Literature, Deleuze and Music, and Deleuze and Geophilosophy.
Ian Buchanan is Professor of Communication and Cultural Studies at Charles Darwin University. Gregg Lambert is Associate Professor of English and Textual Studies at Syracuse University.
