Deleuze and Guattari: An Introduction to the Politics of Desire

005118About This Book 

Both accessible and definitive, Deleuze and Guattari provides a critical examination of the writing of two notoriously difficult thinkers. This important introduction is divided into three sections–knowledge, power, and desire–and provides a systematic account of the intellectual context as well as an exhaustive analysis of the key themes informing Deleuze and Guattari’s work. Providing a framework for reading the important and influential study Capitalism and Schizophrenia, this volume is attentive to the needs of the student by providing a lexicon of the difficult ideas used in Deleuze and Guattari’s discussion of philosophy, art, and politics. Deleuze and Guattari is an important addition to the critical literature on some of the most challenging work in recent social theory. It will be the standard introduction to Deleuze and Guattari for students of philosophy and social theory. Back to top
