If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.

Placing '""' around words will perform a phrase search. The search results will contain those words in that order.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
This book assesses and contrasts the reading styles of two major French philosophers, Alain Badiou and Gilles Deleuze. Both men share a historical and intellectual tradition and worked alongside each other in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Vincennes, Paris. Jean-Jacques Lecercle seeks to address the French critical corpus often neglected in English writing on Deleuze, as well as contributing to the critical account of Badiou which remains limited in both philosophical cultures. He examines the philosophy of literature that can be derived from their work, contrasting the analytic and the continental philosophies of literature: the difference between Deleuze and Badiou will involve a contrast between Deleuze's aesthetics and Badiou's inaesthetics; their common ground will be found in a politics of literature.
