The Invention of a People : Heidegger and Deleuze on Art and the Political Hardback
by Janae Sholtz
Part of the Plateaus - New Directions in Deleuze Studies series
Presents a multi layered reading of the intersections between two of the most influential figures in contemporary philosophy.
Beginning from the premise that Heidegger and Deleuze both present new models for thinking and revising philosophic practice, Janae Sholtz argues that these models can be linked to their conceptions of art, generating innovative and transformative visions of a future people or, as they both call it, a 'people to come'.
Places the discussion of Heidegger and Deleuze within a larger political and philosophical context of post war thinkers; adds to an area of study where there is very little sustained research and explores the influence of and relation between Heidegger's thought and Deleuze's novelty, drawing unique and innovative parallels in common concepts and themes.
