  1. Simone Bignall, Sean Bowden & Paul Patton (eds.) (2014). Deleuze and Pragmatism. Routledge.
    This collection brings together the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze and the rich tradition of Pragmatist thought, providing a model for pluralist, boundary-crossing scholarship. Contributors explore Deleuze’s explicit and implicit relationship to American Pragmatism and investigate Deleuze’s thought at those points which are of most conceptual interest to philosophers currently working in the tradition of Pragmatism. By bringing together Deleuze’s philosophy and Pragmatist thought while remaining conscious of the differences between them, the collection aims to produce through the juxtaposition of these (...)

  2. Simone Bignall (2012). Dismantling the Face: Pluralism and the Politics of Recognition. Deleuze Studies 6 (3):389-410.

  4. Simone Bignall (2010). Desire, Apathy and Activism. Deleuze Studies 4 (supplement):7-27.
    This paper explores the themes of apathy and activism by contrasting the conventionally negative concept of motivational desire-lack with Deleuze and Guattari's positive concept of ‘desiring-production’. I suggest that apathy and activism are both problematically tied to the same motivational force: the conventional negativity of desire, which results in a ‘split subject’ always already ‘undone’ by difference. The philosophy of positive desiring-production provides alternative concepts of motivation and selfhood, not characterised by generative lack or alienation. On the contrary, this alternative (...)
