Though Deleuze, Derrida, and Badiou each center their ethical thinking on the event, there has been no systematic investigation of the relationships between their work on the subject. After interpreting each thinker individually, this dissertation argues that a common trajectory emerges from their work. Radicalizing Heidegger against the Stoics, Deleuze, Derrida, and Badiou each conceptualize ethics as a post-evental cartography. Though Meillassoux aims to move forward from a post-evental cartography, his attempts fail. A better option—'an-ethics'—is proposed.
