  • Marx

The German Ideology

  • Nietzsche

Deleuze‘s Nietzsche and Philosophy

  • Freud

Three Essays on the Theory of Sexuality
The Interpretation of Dreams
The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense (by Anna Freud, but no less important)

  • Heidegger

Time and Free Will
Creative Evolution
Deleuze‘s Bergsonism

I like both the Adorno and the Deleuze tracks. Off the top of my head, I have some lighter, or shorter work that could be paired with Deleuze's major works. Forrest (talk)

Material to pair with Deleuze[edit source]

(most of these are short or do not need to be read in full. But there are a few novels here that I would like to read for the first time.)

Antonin Artaud[edit source]

Samuel Becket[edit source]
  • Molloy
  • The Unnamable
Franz Kafka[edit source]
Leopold von Sacher Masoch[edit source]

Venus and Furs, to pair with Deleuze's Coldness and Cruelty

Henry Miller[edit source]

Sexus, banned in Paris, influenced A-Œ

Daniel Paul Schreber[edit source]

Memoir of My Nervous Illness (very fun)
Secondary reading on Schreber,

  • Freud's The Case of Schreber
  • Lacan
    • Selections from Book III of Lacan's seminar, The Joyce Seminar, and perhaps elsewhere in the seminar.
    • On a Question Prior to Any Possible Treatment of Psychosis or other selections from Ecrits
    • Secondary sources (Jacques Alain Miller, Bruce Fink, Joan Copjec, Zizek, other Lacanian Ink pdfs.)
Proust[edit source]

I've promised myself I would read In Search of Lost Time within the decade. Delueze's book on Proust is supposed to be one of his most accessible. Also pairs well with Bergson.

Sophocles[edit source]

Oedipus Rex

I would also be in interested in reading Deleuze's Film and media theory.

Adorno and Benjamin's literary criticism would be a good angle for me re Adorno epistemology. Add Helene Cisoux to that too. There is a lot of crossover between the three.
