Iconoclastic Theology

Gilles Deleuze and the Secretion of Atheism

First Edition

F. LeRon Shults

Published by Edinburgh University Press

Plateaus New Directions in Deleuze Studies

  • The first exposition of Deleuze's radical critique of religion, demonstrating the crucial role this creative destruction plays throughout his philosophical corpus
  • Provocatively describes this aspect of Deleuze's work as 'theology', following his own (paradoxical, humorous, diabolical) description of that discipline as 'the science of non-existing entities'
  • Brings Deleuze studies into dialogue with the bio-cultural sciences of religion, which are transforming the current debates about the value of atheism in the academy and the public sphere
