Deleuze and Derrida

Difference and the Power of the Negative

First Edition

Vernon W. Cisney

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Situates the philosophy of difference within the broader context of the history of philosophy, going back to its beginnings in Plato and Aristotle
  • Focuses on the positions that Derrida and Deleuze occupy with respect to the Hegel-Nietzsche-Heidegger triumvirate
  • Provides the first in-depth analysis of the defining distinction between Derrida and Deleuze, out of which most of the other differences (ethical, political, etc.) between the two can be more richly understood
  • Offers an original understanding of the history and trajectory of continental philosophy specifically, rooted in an engagement with Husserl's time-consciousness analysis and in Deleuze's adoption of Bergson's thinking
