Gilles Deleuze's Political Posture

Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the politics in the works of Gilles Deleuze. There is no political treatise nor political programme in Deleuze's work and his political orientation is very basic. However, in his Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia, Deleuze and his co-author Félix Guattari dealt with political themes. The question of fascism is analysed in it and a universal vision of history is proposed. The same pre-occupations characterise A Thousand Plateaus, where these notions are revised and corrected.
