(p.1) Introduction
Deleuze and the Naming of God

Daniel Colucciello Barber

Edinburgh University Press

The Introduction makes use of Nietzsche’s proclamation that “God is dead” as a means of analysing the interconnections between the imaginations of the world, of God, and of the future. It gives special attention to Nietzsche’s discussion of the otherworldly, and in this way it opens up the question of whether religion, or the act of naming God, is necessarily transcendent. Additionally, the Introduction provides accounts of the key terms at stake in the overall argument, including immanence, transcendence, religion, and the secular. It is against the background of these accounts that the question of the relation between religion and Deleuze’s philosophy is given initial definition.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, future, immanence, Friedrich Nietzsche, religion, the secular, transcendence, world
