Show Summary Details


This chapter proposes a model of desire that is not predicated on a lack and elucidates this conception of desire as it relates to Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari's Anti-Oedipus. The full elucidation of this conception entails the discussion of the concepts of bodies and bodies without organs. The chapter discusses Deleuze and Guattari's argument for an affirmative conception of desire that is fundamentally anoedipal.
