    If there is an orientation of the philosophy of Deleuze this is it the extinction of the term 'being' and therefore of ontology These words written early on in Francios Zourabichvili's monograph on Deleuze might ring strangely to those for whom Deleuze has offered nothing less than an ontology for twenty first century a way of thinking about Being no longer bedevilled by the 'metaphysics of presence' or the impasses of 'ontotheology' Yet Zourabichvili remains uneuivocal There is no ontology in Deleuze And it's precisely from this audacious starting point that Zourabichvili begins his magisterial reconstruction of Deleuze's thought one spanning breadth and depth of his writings both with and without Guattari in a reading as rigorous as it is incisive Indeed not only is Deleuze's philosophy bereft of an ontology but the abandonment of ontological thought in Deleuze is in fact the very condition under which sense can be made of his complex claims regarding immanence sense representation affectivity and time Such at least are the stakes and the force of Zourabichvili's grand pronouncements regarding the Deleuzian project This seemingly peculiar reading one that runs against much of the grain of Deleuze interpretation today is nonetheless grounded in Zourabichvili's hyper attentiveness to Deleuze's attempt to establish a new 'image of thought' or 'manner of thinking' roughly which does not presuppose an already established affinity between thought and its object In other words rather than supposing that thought is engendered by the movement of an internal 'will' which always has its goal in sight for Deleuze as for Zourabichvili thought is only ever instigated by the force of an 'encounter' an infraction of the 'outside' which establishes the very parameters and possibilities of thought's travails recall Nietzsche's uip A thought comes when 'it' wants and not when 'I' want This 'involuntarist image of thought' constitutes for Zourbichvili something like the key to unlocking the Deleuzian corpus and as such The Philosophy of the Event can be read as nothing other than a dogged pursuit of the the way in which this idea ramifies itself across and through the baroue tapestry that is Deleuze's philosophical oeuvreZourbichvili's Deleuze is thus a consummate heir of the 'critical turn' instigated by Kant a philosopher who rather than pose the uestion of Being instead ceaselessly asks after the conditions of experience Now whether or not one is willing to follow Zourabichvili all the way to the ends that he reaches with this line of reading one thing is certain this is a Deleuze who demands to be confronted by anyone today who'd lay claim to his heritage and the philosophical pathways he advanced If it's true as Zourabichvili's writes here that 'philosophy will not emerge from the Deleuzian adventure unscathed' neither will Deleuze remain unscathed by the adventure embarked upon by this remarkable book A uick note on the Vocabulary it's very close to something like a dictionary of selected Deleuzian terms with Zourabichvili giving a two to five page gloss on each one Given the condensed manner in which each term is explicated the Vocabulary makes for some incredibly tough reading Nonetheless as Zourabichvili himself writes this is in fact a very Deleuzian pedagogical move nothing seems propitious than a lexicon spelling out Deleuze's concepts one by one while underlining their reciprocal implications Every concept participates in an act of thinking that displaces the field of intelligibility modifying the conditions of the problem we pose ourselves What better way to go about putting into practice the very encounters claimed here to be the kindling for thought
