Deleuze and Political Activism, Paperback / softback Book

Deleuze and Political Activism Paperback / softback

Edited by Dr. Marcelo Svirsky

Part of the Deleuze Studies Special Issues series


When Deleuze and Guattari wrote Anti-Oedipus they hoped it would be a call to arms for dissidents and political activists.

Rather than set out a program of change, they tried to isolate the political, cultural and economic factors that inhibit change.

In so doing they created a work that was instantly recognised as a philosophical watershed.

It changed the landscape of political theory in a single sweep.

In this volume, both critical theorists and activists analyse Deleuze and Guattari's critical tools on radical politics.

The essays integrate theoretical elaborations and case-study problematisations on different political spaces and times, offering new ways to reflect on, and experiment with transformative politics.
