Death and Desire in Hegel, Heidegger and Deleuze by Brent Adkins
Book DescriptionDespite what its title might suggest, Death and Desire is a meditation on life. Using the texts of Hegel, Heidegger, and Deleuze, the author argues that philosophy has been dominated by a form of thought that focuses exclusively on death. The importance of Death & Desire lies in its refusal of the morbidity of much contemporary philosophy. Its uniqueness lies in placing Hegel, Heidegger, and Deleuze in conversation. Its usefulness lies in the clarity with which it articulates and compares these very diverse thinkers. Features: * this is the only book to place Hegel, Heidegger and Deleuze in Conversation * it retells the recent history of death in terms of Freud's 'Mourning and Melancholia' essay * it provides a new account of desire that results in a new account of death

What is a rhizome? What is a war machine? What is a body without organs? This volume provides a singular interpretation of the work in terms of assemblages and connecting that interpretation with traditional and contemporary debates within philosophy. It explains all the terms found in A Thousand Plateaus.
