A Biever Lecture by Professor Daniel Smith, author of Essays on Deleuze. Dr. Smith's writings offers a comprehensive view of Deleuze’s work dealing with not only the history of philosophy, but with how this thinker interacts with all the other disciplines and with major thinkers today. One famous French philosopher, Michel Foucault, said that the 21st century will be known as the Deleuzian century and this remark could be better understood after reading Daniel Smith's book.
In anticipation of Dr. Smith's visit, the Philosophy and Languages and Cultures Departments invite you to attend a series of group discussions on Essays on Deleuze.
Where: Room 217, Bobet Building
Time: 6:00 p.m.
