Worldlessness After Heidegger

Roland Végső

Edinburgh University Press

The conclusion provides a brief summary of the book’s speculative arguments in the form of ten propositions. These theses are designed to clear the ground for a new theoretical engagement of the problem of worldlessness. They lay the foundations of an affirmative definition of worldlessness. In order to put forward a positive definition of this project, the book concludes by an inversion of the Deleuzian formula for perversion. While Deleuze claimed that perversion consists in the construction of a ‘world without Others’, the conclusion argues that our task today is to engage ‘Others without a world’.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Emmanuel Levinas, Perversion, Other, Possibility, Necessity
