Dorion Sagan

University of Minnesota Press

Weaving together previously introduced strands of philosophical truth-seeking, scientific elegance, and Spinoza’s Cartesian monism, this essay traces Freud’s death drive, which puzzled him, to thermodynamics. Derrida’s archives are engaged. A near-final section posits rational religion as a Whiteheadian cosmonoia. Ends with a quote from the great Brazillian writer, Clarice Lispector.

Keywords:   science, philosophy, Bataille, Whitehead, Derrida, Margulis, biopolitics, psychedelics, thermodynamics
