The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque (French: Le Pli: Leibnitz et le Baroque) is a book by Gilles Deleuze which offers a new interpretation of the Baroque and of the work of Leibniz. Deleuze argues that Leibniz's work constitutes the grounding elements of Baroque philosophy of art and science. Deleuze views Leibniz's concept of the monad as folds of space, movement and time. He also interprets the world as a body of infinite folds that weave through compressed time and space.
