Abstract

Ruben Borg's The Measureless Time of Joyce, Deleuze and Derrida argues that James Joyce's Finnegans Wake must be read as a singular attempt to represent the eccentric structure of post-human temporality. The book relocates the Wake within a long history of philosophies of time as well as recent post-structuralist and information theory. Drawing upon the work of Gilles Deleuze and Jacques Derrida, Borg shows how Joyce's formal and narratological innovations enabled him to present a structure of time that does not obey the linear, humanistic progression of the bildungsroman but instead manifests mechanical temporal economies of production and waste.
