Deleuze and the Naming of God: Post-Secularism and the Future of Immanence

by Daniel Colucciello Barber
 

See All Formats & Editions

Deleuze's philosophy of immanence vigorously rejects every appeal to the beyond. For this reason, it is often presumed to be indifferent to the concerns of religion. Daniel Barber shows that religion and Deleuze's thought are both motivated by a demand to create new modes of existence. Thus, the enemy of Deleuze's philosophy is not religion but the transcendent.

Overview

Deleuze's philosophy of immanence vigorously rejects every appeal to the beyond. For this reason, it is often presumed to be indifferent to the concerns of religion. Daniel Barber shows that religion and Deleuze's thought are both motivated by a demand to create new modes of existence. Thus, the enemy of Deleuze's philosophy is not religion but the transcendent. Deleuze and the Naming of God shows how Deleuzian immanence is able both to oppose religious transcendence and to enter an alliance with immanent accounts of the name of God. In doing so, it shows a way out of the paralysing debate between religion and the secular.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Daniel Colucciello Barber ... has offered his most incisive and challenging contribution to date in Deleuze and the Naming of God. While it is a strong contribution to the study of Deleuze's thought, the book is concerned with far more than the singular themes of Deleuze, immanence, or post-secularism ... It has consequences within and well beyond the fold of Deleuze studies."—Maxwell Kennel, University of Waterloo, PhaenEx
