I argue in my thesis that Deleuze’s thought, far from being a critique of representation, is, in fact, an account of its genesis. Because this is an essentially phenomenological project, I first explore how Husserl theorized the production of meaning and representation, and then I elaborate the way in which Deleuze’s three central texts – Difference and Repetition, The Logic of Sense, and Anti-Oedipus – continue this project. I conclude by briefly considering the consequences of this point of view in light of recent appropriations of Deleuze’s thought in the humanities, and in particular literary criticism and theory.
