EUP has made the first chapter of Iconoclastic Theology available online. Here is the penultimate paragraph from the concluding chapter:
"I have tried to contribute to the evolving dialogue among my transgressing Deleuzian Friends in three ways. First, I have attempted to demonstrate the centrality and pervasiveness of theological hypotheses in Deleuze’s work. Reading him from this perspective draws attention to connections and discloses patterns across his writings that might otherwise be missed. It also helps to make sense of his consistent affirmation of the “diabolical” throughout his career; as a conceptual motif, Anti-Christ is at least as generative as Anti-Oedipus. Second, I have shown how several of his key concepts can be mapped onto a conceptual heuristic derived from the bio-cultural study of religion. Reading him from this perspective renders more explicit the theolytic force of his hypothesis-production, highlighting the role of anthropomorphic prudery and sociographic promiscuity in his creative process. It also introduces a definition of religion that helps us identify where we can creatively fragment his hypotheses and make new rhizomic connections. Third, I hope to have demonstrated how fruitful it can be to release the flows of the iconoclastic trajectory of theology by cracking open the arboreal edifices of monotheistic religion with a precision hammering that is even more intense than Deleuze’s, thereby increasing the secretion of a productive atheism that liberates thinking, acting and feeling. Whether or not we call this “theology,” it is, as Deleuze would say, interesting and important work to do."
