<history of philosophy, biography> french philosopher (1925-1995) who used critical interpretations of Spinoza (Spinoza et le problËme de l'expression / Expressionism in Philosophy: Spinoza, 1968) and Nietzsche (Nietzsche et la philosophie / Nietzsche and Philosophy, 1962) as the basis for a profound attack on modernist rationality. Like Foucault, Deleuze was sharply critical of the neo-Freudian psychoanalytic theories of Jacques Lacan. In collaboration with psychoanalyst FÈlix Guattari, Deleuze published L'Anti-Oedipe (Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia) (1972), an extended critique of contemporary political structures, and Qu'est-ce que la philosophie? (What is Philosophy?) (1981). Deleuze developed his own theories of meaning and interpretation in DiffÈrence et rÈpÈtition (Difference and Repetition) (1968) and Logique du sens (The Logic of Sense) (1969).
