This work takes up and elaborates the themes set out in Benjamin's previous benchmark book The Plural Event. While in The Plural Event Benjamin formulated a reworking of the idea of ontology through an investigation of crucial writings on the topic by Heidegger, Hegel et al, Other Work; Philosophy, Literature, Psychoanalysis applies the insights gleaned in a systematic way to the fields of Literature, Philosophy and Psychoananlysis. Adopting a `thinking with' rather than a critically distanced approach, Benjamin thought-provokingly works through the cultural possibilities of the `event as difference' with respect to each discipline. In the process, he engages with the work of a broad diversity of thinkers, including Laplanche and Freud, Holderlin and Celan, Aristotle and Quintillian. The most engaging modern thinkers are undoubtedly those who explore interdisciplinary areas - Andrew Benjamin continues to hold a privileged place amongst these.
Andrew Benjamin is a professor of philosophy at Monash University. He has published over ten monographs on postmodern theory and aesthetics, and edits the prestigious Warwick Studies in Continental Philosophy series.
