Constructions by John Rajchman 17 editions published between and in 3 languages and held by 2, WorldCat member libraries worldwide In this series of overlapping essays on architecture and art, John Rajchman attempts to do theory in a new way that takes off from the philosophy of the late Gilles Deleuze.

He looks at the particular realism and empiricism construuctions this affirmation implies and how they might be used to diagnose new forces confronting us today.
In the process, he explores the many connections that Deleuze himself constructs in working out his philosophy, with the arts, political movements, even the neurosciences and artificial intelligence.

Announced in his first book, on David Hume, then taking off with his early studies of Nietzsche and Bergson, the problem of an “empiricist conversion” became central to Deleuze’s work, in particular to his aesthetics and his conception of the art of cinema.
In the new regime of communication and information-machines with which he thought we are confronted today, he came to believe that such a conversion, such an empiricism, such a new art and will-to-art, was what we need most. The last, seemingly minor question of “a life” is thus inseparable from Deleuze’s striking image of philosophy not as a wisdom we already possess, but as a pure immanence of what is yet to come.
