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.


«This treatment of Deleuze’s three syntheses of time provides the analytical depth and intellectual profundity lacking in existing accounts. This is a ‘must’ read for the serious student and scholar of Deleuze. It will also reward anyone with an interest in the philosophy of time.» (Keith Ansell Pearson, Professor of Philosophy and Director of Graduate Research, University of Warwick)

«Keith W. Faulkner’s study tackles one of the most important but also most difficult aspects of Deleuze’s philosophy – the theory of temporality (repetition) – and his analyses of the ‘three syntheses’ are not only rigorous and penetrating, but also accessible.» (Daniel W. Smith, Purdue University)
