About the Author

Henry Somers-Hall is Senior Lecturer in Philosophy at Manchester Metropolitan University in the United Kingdom. He is the cotranslator (with Alistair Welchman, Mergen Reglitz, and Nick Midgley) of Salomon Maimon's Essay on Transcendental Philosophy.


"...the most informed discussion on the philosophical relationship between Hegel and Deleuze published until now ... In this sense, it constitutes a must-read for any scholar researching on post-structuralism and the critique of representation." - symploke "Neither simply disdainful of Hegel, nor wholly convinced by Deleuze, in this rich, wide-ranging volume, Henry Somers-Hall offers what is assuredly the most comprehensive and important treatment of their varied and complex relations to date ... a rewarding and recommended read for anyone interested in the ongoing development of Continental philosophy." - Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "This is the most comprehensive and philosophically interesting analysis of the Deleuze-Hegel relation. Somers-Hall has assembled a remarkable amount of material that is quite diverse-from the problems of representation, judgment, and calculus to those of force and evolution-and his interpretations are masterful. This book will have a significant impact on the way we think about the development of twentieth-century philosophy." - Leonard Lawlor, Sparks Professor of Philosophy, Penn State University "Somers-Hall's book is a profound engagement with both Deleuze and Hegel, and it provides a much-needed antidote to interpretations that all-too-quickly characterize Deleuze as anti-Hegelian." - Daniel W. Smith, coeditor of Gilles Deleuze: Image and Text
