This project shows how the work of the French
philosopher Gilles Deleuze points us in the
direction of understanding religion as essentially
conflictive and violent. Many scholars have
maintained that religion is able to serve some
irenic or social function. These studies of religion
are more apologetic than critical, defending
religion’s possibility and potential for individual
and social good. This work attempts to look at
religion differently - providing neither an
apologetic for religion, nor a polemic against
religion. This 'different' view of religion,
inspired by Deleuze’s lifelong fascination with an
absolute and conflictive difference, extends beyond
the limits of language into the realm of the
metaphysical. He is the first and only so-called
postmodernist to venture into this uncharted
territory. Following Deleuze’s own nomenclature,
this study of the deep and essentially conflictive
metaphysical differences found in religion will be
called the nomadology of religion.
