October 1, 1977 to March 1, 1978

Following publication of Anti-Oedipus in 1972, Deleuze continues to develop the proliferation of concepts that his collaboration with Guattari had yielded. Throughout the 1970s, Deleuze and Guattari's interest in expanding these concepts continues, eventually producing the sequel, A Thousand Plateaus.

This seminar is nonetheless an exceptional example, as Deleuze notes, of his return to the history of philosophy by considering continuous variation in light of Spinoza's philosophy. We have created this Seminar with hopes that the other recordings and/or transcripts on continuous variation and other topics will eventually become available to complete our documentary archive of the year-long teaching event.
