Death and Desire in Hegel, Heidegger and Deleuze

This chapter discusses Gottfried Wilhelm Hegel's thoughts about death in his Phenomenology of Spirit. It presents Hegel's presentation of death in his work as being continually transformed and as arguing that death can be found in every section except consciousness. The chapter argues that the continual transformation of death throughout the Phenomenology of Spirit is indicative of a fundamentally different relation to death and explains that the development of consciousness is not structured around an incorporated lack, but an introjected one.

Keywords:   Gottfried Wilhelm Hegel, death, Phenomenology of Spirit, continual transformation, consciousness, introjected death
