About this book

Deleuze and Evolutionary Theory gathers together contributions by many of the central theorists in studies of the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze who have led the way in breaking down the boundaries between philosophical and biological research. They focus on the significance of Deleuze and Guattari's engagements with evolutionary theory across the full range of their work, from the interpretation of Darwin in Difference and Repetition to the symbiotic alliances of wasp and orchid in A Thousand Plateaus. In this way, they explore the anthropological, social and biopolitical significance of the convergences and divergences between philosophy and evolutionary science.

Media reviews

"Packed with searching and detailed analyses, this volume brings the study of Deleuze's relations with biology – that on which he relied, but also contemporary developments – into its maturity. From Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire to Darwin, Ruyer, Oyama, and many others, from genomics to epigenetics and beyond, the book's breadth provides constant provocations to thought."
– John Protevi, Louisiana State University
