Sean Bowden shows you how the Deleuzian event should be understood in terms of the broader metaphysical thesis that fixed things or substances are always secondary with respect to events. He achieves this through a reconstruction of Deleuze's relation to the history of thought from the Stoics through to Simondon, taking account of Leibniz, Lautman, structuralism and psychoanalysis along the way. Key features: - Focuses on Deleuze's concept of events and highlights the philosophical richness of The Logic of Sense- Engages with material by Lautman and Simondon that has not yet been translated into English- Examines and clarifies a number of Deleuze's most difficult philosophical concepts, including sense, problematic Ideas and intensive individuation
