The Two-Fold Thought of Deleuze and Guattari: Intersections and Animations

Charles J. Stivale (Guilford Press, 361 pp., $19.95, Paper (Original)

Beginning in the 1960's and culminating in the 1990's Deleuze and Guattari engaged in one of the most productive and compelling collaborations in the history of Western philosophy. As important as Anti-Oedipus has become in contemporary philosophical discourse, many have found their terminology and concepts difficult to comprehend. Stivale's study provides an excellent grounding in the thought and major works of the French philosophy duo (works discussed include Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism & Schizophrenia, Kafka: Toward a Minor Literature, A Thousand Plateaus, and others). Stivale does not discuss the process of collaboration between Deleuze and Guattari but rather how their thought "arises from two individual, fluctuating subjectivities." In addition to his trenchant analysis of Deleuze and Guattari's work, Stivale also frames his discussion within the current discussion of their works, including the multiple web pages devoted to the two. Some of the contents include: a discussion of Deleuze's and Guattari's challenges to Marxism and Freudianism; the development of their literary and socio-cultural perspectives; a discussion with Guattari from 1985; notes from a meeting between the author and Deleuze; and borrowing from Foucault's oft-quoted quote, "perhaps one day, this century will be known as Deleuzian," Stivale reflects upon how one might "be Deleuzian."
