Death and Desire in Hegel, Heidegger and Deleuze

Brent Adkins

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter analyses the projections of death in Martin Heidegger's Being and Time, and examines the nature of Dasein in order to argue that death is one of the conditions for the possibility of experience. It explains that the connection between Dasein's end and its ability to be task-oriented bears directly on the relation between death and melancholia, and contends that Dasein's unique form of existence is a result of its constitution as possibility.

Keywords:   death, Martin Heidegger, Being and Time, Dasein, melancholia
