On Deleuze and Guattari's theory of libidinal economy and fascism  by Correa, P and Correa, A.

One useful way of examining connections and interactions is Deleuze and Guattarri’s illustration of the war machine. The following material spurred useful questions: Can the body be “played” with/in/on anonymously? What is the relation of the body and the play in the cotenxt that Deleuze is placing Chess and Go? Is this ta useful distinction? …


Deleuze and Guattari's Anti-Oedipus : introduction to schizoanalysis

Deleuze's historical monographs were, in a sense, preliminary sketchesfor the great canvas of Difference and Repetition (1968),which marshaled these resources from the history of philosophy in anambitious project to construct a “philosophy ofdifference.” Following Maimon's critique, Difference andRepetition produces a two-fold shift from the Kantian project ofproviding the universal and necessary conditions for possibleexperience. First, rather than seeking the conditionsfor possible experience, Deleuze wants to provide an accountof the genesis of real experience, that is, the experience ofthis concretely existing individual here and now. Second, to respectthe demands of the philosophy of difference, the genetic principlemust itself be a differential principle.

Although Deleuze wrote a touching and certainly important book intribute to his friend Foucault after the latter's death in 1984, thefinal important figure in Deleuze's readings of other philosophers isLeibniz, to whom, it must be recalled, Maimon appealed in hiscriticism of Kant. In 1988, Deleuze published a book on Leibnizentitled The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque, which added newelements to the reading of Leibniz that appeared in Deleuze's earlierbooks: an interpretation centered on the concept of the fold, adevelopment of a concept of the Baroque, and a attempt to define aneo-Leibnizianism in terms of contemporary artistic and scientificpractices. While The Fold is a fascinating work, we willconcentrate here on Deleuze's early reading of Leibniz, which plays animportant role in Difference and Repetition.

Deleuze and Guattari: Two Meditations | CTheory

The thought that takes place in this image begins to approximate the productive intensity of the conjunctive synthesis Deleuze and Guattari describe as the becoming intense of the process of desiring production. Images like these, which appear as so many hallucinations, overwhelm us and haunt us. They leave us neither satisfied nor wanting. They are at once over-full and unsatisfying in the sense that we do not know what we want from them. They do not put an end to our thinking or our desiring. They intensify them because their own thinking and desiring, the thought and desire of these images, have no purpose or end. They disable us and, in a way, distract us from the important business of following the narrative, of solving the puzzle of what is happening in this scene and what will happen next. And yet we are not reduced, for this reason, to a state of helpless or hapless inertia by these images. We find ourselves, rather, thoughtfully engaged in them in a way that is profoundly different from films governed by action and the movement-image.
