Gilles Deleuze (Great Thinkers Series)

Christopher Watkin

Paperback 2020-10-02

Publisher Description

:Why should a Christian study the thought of Gilles Deleuze? The French philosopher gives us a sophisticated account of what happens to truth and ethics in a system that does not rely on God as traditionally understood. Moreover, his thought profoundly influences and makes visible how our society understands everything from knowledge and truth to sexuality and identity. Christopher Watkin, a scholar of French literature and philosophy, lucidly and succinctly presents Deleuze's work in a way that is accessible to non-philosophers and brings his writing into sustained conversation with prominent biblical themes and motifs from Reformed theology. His biblical theological approach seeks to bring the overall structure of Deleuze's thought into conversation with the overarching narrative of the Bible. As you engage with Deleuze's thought, you will discover a model of cultural engagement that you can use to understand any contemporary or historical thinker or school.
