Abstract

Gilles Deleuze and Alain Badiou are two very different philosophers, and yet they touch upon many similar themes. Perhaps most noticeable is their respective concerns for developing philosophical systems free of the concerns of so-called post-modernism. In this paper I look at some of the themes in their work, and consider what might thereby be enabled within thinking about law. In so doing the paper argues that Deleuze’s work is particularly useful, as it allows for a polymorphous practice of thought, appropriately named as “jurisprudence.”
