Andrea M. Stephenson is a doctoral student in philosophy of religion and theology at Claremont Graduate University.

Review:


This collection of essays brings together three very different thinkers around their shared immanentism and anti-substantialism, attending to the differing ways that events, bodies, and gods become in the absence of a transcendent order of being. Operating without a form, essence, or original according to which becoming comes to be, Whitehead, Deleuze, and Butler share an attentiveness to that which has never been before. This volume promises a kind of newness at all levels: it stages an unprecedented conversation among thinkers committed to the unprecedented.-Mary Jane Rubenstein


Offers a lucid and nuanced introduction to some of the key concepts developed by Whitehead, Deleuze, and Butler.-Mayra Rivera
