|Abstract||An examination of Deleuze’s reading of Spinoza, that focuses on how Spinoza becomes a significant figure in Deleuze’s project of tracing an alternative lineage in the history of philosophy, which, by distancing itself from Hegelian idealism, culminates in the construction of a philosophy of difference. By exploiting the implication of the differential point of view of the infinitesimal calculus in his reading of Spinoza, Deleuze presents Spinoza’s metaphysics as determined according to a ‘logic of expression’. This logic is offered as an alternative to the Hegelian dialectical logic. The main argument of the book is that Deleuze redeploys Spinoza, or the Spinozist concepts that he extracts from Spinoza’s philosophy, to mobilise his philosophy of difference as an alternative to the dialectical philosophy determined by the Hegelian dialectic logic.|
