Deleuze and the Naming of God : Post-Secularism and the Future of Immanence Paperback / softback
Part of the Plateaus - New Directions in Deleuze Studies series
This book addresses the relationship between Deleuze's differential immanence and the notion of religion.
Gilles Deleuze's philosophy of immanence vigorously denies that there is anything beyond our direct experience.
For this reason, people often presume that there is a deep divide between Deleuze's philosophy and religion.
Now, Daniel Barber shows that religion and Deleuze's thought share the same motivation: to find new ways to exist.
Deleuze and the Naming of God shows a way out of the paralysing debate between religion and the secular.
The hardback has sold nearly 200 copies since publication in December 2013; develops the idea of immanence into a way of escaping the stale binary between religion and the secular; changes the perception of Deleuze's philosophy from simple affirmation to one in which themes such as suffering become central and draws on the thought of Adorno and Yoder in addition to Deleuze.
