Deleuze and the Three Syntheses of Time

Front Cover
Peter Lang, 2006 - Time - 172 pages
In the most important theory of time since Heidegger, Deleuze challenges Kant's unity of apperception, as well as the phenomenological account of time. This book, using the principles of structuralism, exposes how Freud's unconscious mechanisms synthesize time. It also gives a vibrant and original account of Deleuze's theory of the pure Event using detailed examples from Hamlet and Oedipus, as well as Nietzsche's doctrine of the eternal return. This book is essential reading for students and scholars who wish to understand Deleuze's dissolved subject as well as our modern sense of fragmented time.
