Gilles Deleuze’s scattered writings on love sit uncomfortably in conventional understandings of his work yet, I claim, they may have unrealised potential for both scholars of his work and theorists of intimacy more generally. Although much work on sex and sexuality is underpinned by Deleuze and Guattari’s concept of desire, only recently have Deleuze’s writing on love been theorised. This is perhaps not surprising, as his work on love may appear to be at odds with both his anti-humanism and his refusal to regard the human subject as either stable or coherent. But this is the case only if love is imagined to require "the human" and "the subject" to perform it, or if such matters are presumed to be absent from Deleuze’s work.
