Death and Desire in Hegel, Heidegger and Deleuze

This chapter examines Dasein's unique mode of temporality. It discusses Martin Heidegger's understanding of temporality in a way that is very different from both common conceptions of temporality and theoretical conceptions of temporality. The chapter provides a detailed analysis of Dasein as melancholic and the transcendental role that melancholia plays in Being and Time. It discusses Heidegger's argument that thinking of time as a series of nows is dependent on thinking of time as dependent on Dasein's existence as possibility.

Keywords:   Dasein, temporality, Martin Heidegger, Being and Time, existence as possibility
