Deleuze's Cinema Books : Three Introductions to the Taxonomy of Images Hardback


Deleuze's two Cinema books explore film through the creation of a series of philosophical concepts.

Not only bewildering in number, Deleuze's writing procedures mean his exegesis is both complex and elusive.

Three questions emerge: What are the underlying principles of the taxonomy?

How many concepts are there, and what do they describe?

How might each be used in engaging with a film? David Deamer's book is the first to fully respond to these three questions, unearthing the philosophies inspiring Deleuze's classifications, exploring every concept and reading a film for each.

Clearly and concisely mapping the Cinema books for newcomers to Deleuzian film studies, Deamer also opens up new areas of enquiry for expert readers.
