Description - Deleuze and Religion by Mary Bryden
Although not a believer himself, Gilles Deleuze's philosophical thinking nevertheless engages with notions of Godhead, belief, spirituality, cosmology and Biblical research, as well as exhibiting the deep influences of such theists as Spinoza. However, despite the considerable, and ever-expanding body of scholarship that exists on Deleuze's work, until now, no single volume has explored the religious implications and connections of Deleuze's thinking. Now, Mary Bryden has assembled a team of international scholars, all experts on Deleuzian thought, to do just that. Among the subjects considered are Deleuze's own critique of God-hypotheses and his analysis of those theological elements present in other philosophers' work. This collection will be invaluable for researchers, teachers and students of Theology, Philosophy, Critical Theory and Cultural Studies, as well as students of French who read Deleuze's work in its original language. This collection of essays offers a varied and stimulating selection of cross-disciplinary approaches towards the linkage of Deleuzian thought with religion.
