These three volumes reprint key essays by leading theorists and practitioners on Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari's life and work, both individually and in their collaborations.
Volume 1 provides an overview of Deleuze's importance for cultural theory and practice across the arts, including essays on theatre, cinema, video, painting, literature, music and dance. This volume also includes assessments of Deleuze's original and fecund engagements with the philosophies of Hume, Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant and Nietzsche and his effort to loosen them from the grip of the canon of the history of philosophy.
The critical essays in Volume 2 constitute the first published collection devoted exclusively to Guattari's life and work. His writing is placed in the context of the anti-psychiatry movement, and his critique of capitalism, and participation in and reflections on new social movements are brought into focus. A major section is devoted to his contributions to the theory and practice of schizoanalysis and to radical therapeutic interventions in general, but with special attention to the implications of his seminal concept of transversality.
Volume 3 includes both indispensable classic essays on the collaborations of Deleuze and Guattari by those who were their contemporaries, and takes their work in new directions by displaying its importance for urban studies and architecture, with an emphasis on its Japanese reception. A section is devoted exclusively to feminist responses to their work. The problems and promises of machinic and nomad thought are also investigated in depth.
