Secrets of Becoming brings into conversation modes of thought traditionally held apart: WhiteheadGs philosophy of the event, DeleuzeGs philosophy of multiplicity, and Judith ButlerGs philosophy of gender difference. Why should one try to connect these strains of thinking? What might make the work of these thinkers negotiable with one another? This volume finds that bridge in an emphasis on GbecomingG that secretly defines the philosophies of Whitehead, Deleuze, and Butler. Its three sections investigate their surprising confluence in a Gphilosophy of becomingG in relation to the question of the event, bodies and societies, and immanence and divinity. A substantial Introduction gives an extended comparison of the three thinkers
