Contents Shakespearean metaphysics and the drama of immanence -- Whitehead and the final satisfaction of Twelfth Night -- Lear's intensity, Bergson's divided kingdom -- Spinoza and The Tempest : an island of one
Summary This new approach to Shakespeare's plays suggests they can be seen as metaphysical 'experiments' conducted in the medium of drama. It engages readers with lively discussion of three 'difficult' metaphysical thinkers - Spinoza, Bergson and Whitehead - through 'The Tempest', 'King Lear' and 'Twelfth Night'
