This work crosses the work of two of the most influential thinkers at the start of the 21st Century, Jacques Derrida and Gilles Deleuze. The book takes the reader on a transversal journey - employing Derridean analysis of the history of philosophy, Deleuzian creative dialogue and complexity theory - to cross the boundaries of philosophy and science. Derrida's concern with metaphysics is developed alongside Deleuze's critique of 'hylomorphism' - the doctrine that production is the imposition of order on chaos. The study attempts to opens a new future for philosophy by revealing the way complexity theory shows the order and creativity inherent in matter itself.
