"The key to explaining Deleuze, like the key to Deleuze's philosophy itself, remains in the examples" - a reviewer on amazon

is "is desire or lack primary" an adequate characterization of deleuze's critique of lacan? are lacan and deleuze compatible? see Zizek, Deleuze, Lacan

how does Deleuze try to move "beyond" dialectics? is he successful? see Deleuze and Hegel Reviews of Levi R. Bryant. Difference and Giveness: Deleuze’s Transcendental Empiricism and the Ontology of Immanence (2008)

John Rajchman - The Deleuze Connections

a very poor and superficial reading of deleuze

stirner and deleuze, bypassing nietzsche? [kierkegaard and deleuze?]

a critique of a certain caricature of deleuze, is not complexity theory the opposite of immanence, where phenomenology's immanence reflects the negative in the mathematical sublime? is negation not immanent as well? as topology shows with it's theory of holes? see both heidegger and lacan

Miscellaneous Thoughts

compare naess' Ecosophy T and self-realization of organisms, with deleuze's/simondon's individuation, and yogic self-realization in eastern/world philosophy

peirce's triad in deleuze and guattari, as well as deleuze's problematic view of mathematics, are perhaps instances of lacan's logical time
