Abstract or Description

This title shows how Deleuze's philosophy is shaking up research in the humanities and social sciences. French philosopher Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was one of the most influential thinkers of the 20th century, and his work is of continuing relevance today. Now, Deleuzian thinking is having a significant impact on research practices in the Social Sciences, particularly because it breaks down the false divide between theory and practice. This book brings together international academics from a range of Social Science and Humanities disciplines to reflect on how Deleuze's philosophy is opening up and shaping empirical research. Contributors from fields throughout the social sciences demonstrate how engaging with Deleuze's work is reshaping their research processes. It questions the relationship between theory and methodology. It explores the conditions under which empirical research is conducted. It considers the effects/affects of research.
