Current Reading: Desert Islands And Other Texts: Gilles Deleuze

It was Foucault who first said: "This century will be Deleuzien."It was Foucault who first said: "This century will be Deleuzien."

Deleuze shortly before his death - he committed suicide by throwing himself from his flat in Paris - recorded one of the Arte Channel's most fascinating philosophical programmes, Abecedaire ("Alphabet"), in which he introduced a subject starting with a letter of the alphabet.

And then that futuristic taste in eye-wear, (Run DMC would have spasmed in envy): that was bound to be a deal clincher.

Current Reading: The One By Whom Scandal Comes: Rene Girard

“Why is there so much violence in our midst?” René Girard asks.“Why is there so much violence in our midst?” René Girard asks.

Published on New Year's Day this year, Rene Girard's "The One By Whom Scandal Comes" is the philosopher's latest extension of his great theory of mimetic desire.
