The Logic of Sense Gilles Deleuze. Edited by Constantin V. Boundas. Translated by Mark Lester with Charles StivaleGilles Deleuze, The Logic of Sense, Edited by Constantin V. Boundas. Translated by Mark Lester with Charles Stivale, Columbia University Press, 1993.

Considered one of the most important works of one of France’s foremost philosophers, and long-awaited in English, The Logic of Sense begins with an extended exegesis of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland. Considering stoicism, language, games, sexuality, schizophrenia, and literature, Deleuze determines the status of meaning and meaninglessness, and seeks the ‘place’ where sense and nonsense collide.

Written in an innovative form and witty style, The Logic of Sense is an essay in literary and psychoanalytic theory as well as philosophy, and helps to illuminate such works as Anti-Oedipus.

Gilles Deleuze was Professor of Philosophy at the Universite de Paris VIII, Vincennes-St. Denis, until his retirement in 1987. His books includeNietzsche and Philosophy,Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia, andDifference and Repetition.Constantin V. Boundas is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Trent University in Ontario. He has translated Deleuze’sEmpiricism and Subjectivity and editedThe Deleuze Reader, both for Columbia University Press.
