The Pure and Empty Form of Death: Deleuze and Heidegger
Ray Brassier, Middlesex University
In Difference and Repetition, the third synthesis of time is the privileged locus for an apocalyptic individuation whereby, in a striking inversion of Heidegger, the future 'ungrounds' the past and death become the subject of a time that splits the Self. For Deleuze, contra Heidegger, time, like death, is never 'mine': it is no-one's. The affirmation of eternal recurrence effects a mode of psychic individuation which transforms thought into a sign of impersonal death.
