The essay considers Gilles Deleuze’s writings on Spinoza (Spinoza and the Problem of Expression and Spinoza. Practical Philosophy) and both the elements of continuity among the different Deleuzian readings of Spinoza and the specific differences of each work are highlighted. It will be observed how in the two works there is a strong attention towards the Spinozian concepts of immanence and univocity. However, if the first one has a certain structuralist setting out in the reading of Deleuze, this characteristics seems to weaken progressively, in favor of an understanding of Spinoza’s thought as a practical philosophy and ethics that is primarily open to the experience of singularity. The Deleuzian interpretation of Spinoza is reconstructed in its internal logics, but also on the background of the French philosophical historiography on the author, that is coeval to Deleuze’s volumes.

Abstract

The essay considers Gilles Deleuze’s writings on Spinoza (Spinoza and the Problem of Expression and Spinoza. Practical Philosophy) and both the elements of continuity among the different Deleuzian readings of Spinoza and the specific differences of each work are highlighted. It will be observed how in the two works there is a strong attention towards the Spinozian concepts of immanence and univocity. However, if the first one has a certain structuralist setting out in the reading of Deleuze, this characteristics seems to weaken progressively, in favor of an understanding of Spinoza’s thought as a practical philosophy and ethics that is primarily open to the experience of singularity. The Deleuzian interpretation of Spinoza is reconstructed in its internal logics, but also on the background of the French philosophical historiography on the author, that is coeval to Deleuze’s volumes.
