Praised for its rare combination of scholarly rigor and imaginative interpretation, Nietzsche and Philosophy has long been recognized as one of the most important analyses of Nietzsche. It is also one of the best introductions to Deleuze's thought, establishing many of his central philosophical positions. In Nietzsche and Philosophy , Deleuze identifies and explores three crucial concepts in Nietzschean thought-multiplicity, becoming, and affirmation-and clarifies Nietzsche's views regarding the will to power, eternal return, nihilism, and difference. For Deleuze, Nietzsche challenged conventional philosophical ideas and provided a means of escape from Hegel's dialectical thinking, which had come to dominate French philosophy.
Nietzsche and Philosophy
Edinburgh: Edinburgh University Press, This is certainly true of DR, in which Deleuze attempts to prioritize the principle of difference over the principle of identity, all within the framework of a critique of the history of Western philosophy.
Thankfully, however, Williams's reading of Deleuze is able to capture the originality of DR while liberating those of us who, like this author, are not completely au fait with the intricacies of Deleuzian thought, from some of the quandaries engendered by its inherent complexity. In writing this book, Williams's intention is to critically analyze the methodology and the arguments contained in Deleuze's book.
Williams treats DR —uncontroversially, I think—as the "keystone" of Deleuze's work taken as a whole, and also as a book that is of deep significance to the broader history of philosophy.
His introduction spells out the finer details of this broader significance of DR, in addition to offering some admirably concise explanations of the book's main themes and concerns.
These, of course, include Deleuze's definition of reality as "both the virtual and the actual" 7 , his arguments against the restriction of reality to "actual identifiable things," which turn on the concept of "difference-in-itself," which Williams redefines as "pure difference" 11 , and the interaction between the virtual and the actual in terms of repetition 11— Subsequent chapters deal with these and other themes in much greater, and far more critical, detail.
Williams's methodology achieves the distinctive, persuasive argument characteristic of DR by means of sensible organization combined with sensitive reading. In each chapter, Williams focuses on a particular section of DR, beginning with its introduction and the preface, in which Deleuze "situates his work in the philosophical context of the turn to difference that gathers pace through the twentieth century" 25 , moving through chapters on "Difference," "Repetition," arguments against common sense, the nature of the "Idea," and the nature of "Reality," and ending with a conclusion that reaches, like DR, "Beyond the Self.
Williams is not slow to acknowledge and to explore the difficulties that Deleuze's thinking must overcome, and this tendency lends both clarity and strength to his reading of DR. As one example, we can take Williams's claim in chapter 3 that Deleuze's ontology must respond to the challenge posed by the equivocal nature of being, where the "relation between different existents is analogical" 59, As Williams explains, a response to this challenge is incumbent on Deleuze in the light of his reading of Aristotle, which seeks to show how and why Aristotle missed a deeper understanding of the concept of "difference.
According to him, the equivocal nature of being revives a principle of determination of identity at the expense of the Deleuzian principle of connection; meaning, Williams explains, that "it's what you are, not what you connect to.
What you are disconnects you from other things, once and for all" The real problem, as he recognizes, is that this also raises the [End Page 61] specter of Cartesian analysis. In what follows, Williams shows us how and why Deleuze must enable us to stop thinking of existence "primarily as the existence of a well-defined thing"; only then can his case be made as to how we can determine difference without defining it in terms of identity or representation—specifically, how we are to arrive at the philosophically vital idea of difference-in-itself.

Nietzsche and Philosophy
Nietzsche and Philosophy French : Nietzsche et la philosophie is a book about Friedrich Nietzsche by the philosopher Gilles Deleuze , in which the author treats Nietzsche as a systematically coherent philosopher, discussing concepts such as the will to power and the eternal return. Nietzsche and Philosophy is a celebrated and influential work. Its publication has been seen as a significant turning-point in French philosophy , which had previously given little consideration to Nietzsche as a serious philosopher. Deleuze writes that the reception of Nietzsche's thought has involved two key issues, those of whether it helped to prepare the way for fascism , and whether it deserves to be considered philosophy. Deleuze, who compares Nietzsche to the philosopher Baruch Spinoza , considers Nietzsche as one of the greatest philosophers of the 19th century, crediting him with altering "both the theory and the practice of philosophy. Deleuze notes that in Thus Spoke Zarathustra , Nietzsche twice denies that "the eternal return is a circle which makes the same return. Nietzsche and Philosophy was first published by Presses Universitaires de France in
Gilles Deleuze, Nietzsche and Philosophy
Nietzsche and Philosophy French: Nietzsche et la philosophie is a book about Friedrich Nietzsche by the philosopher Gilles Deleuze, in which the author treats Nietzsche as a systematically coherent philosopher, discussing concepts such as the will to power and the eternal return. Throughout his active career, Nietzsche maintains that metaphor has no truth-value or truth relation to the phenomenal world. Ambiguity and the absolute : Nietzsche and Merleau-Ponty on the question of truth Chouraqui , Frank , Merleau-Ponty , Maurice , Nietzsche , Friedrich Wilhelm This text seeks to make a contribution to the history of modern philosophy by establishing a structural link between the thoughts of Friedrich Nietzsche and Maurice Merleau-Ponty. Philosophy Of Friedrich Nietzsche.
Of all the major figures in contemporary continental thought, Deleuze is at once one of the most luminous, and practically a lone voice in suggesting that nihilism may successfully be overcome. Whether or not he is correct on this point is thus a commanding question in relation to our understanding of the issue. Many commentators on Nietzsche have argued that his project of overcoming nihilism is destined to failure because of the affinity between the problem of nihilism and the logic of negation.
