Anti-Oedipus is widely recognized as one of the most influential texts in philosophy to have appeared in the last 30 years. The first collaborative effort of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Anti-Oedipus is an exemplary critique of orthodox psychoanalysis which revolutionized postmodernism. Eugene W. Holland provides an excellent introduction to this most challenging of texts. He lucidly presents the theoretical concerns behind Anti-Oedipus and explores with probing clarity the diverse influences of Marx, Freud, Nietzsche and Kant on the development of Deleuze & Guattari's complex thinking. Deleuze and Guattari's Anti-Oedipus: Introduction to Schizoanalysis is a unique and original guide to Anti-Oedipus . Holland masterfully reveals not only the importance of Deleuze and Guattari's early thought but also examines the wider implications of their work in revitalizing Marxism, environmentalism, feminism and cultural studies.

Industry Reviews

"Holland admirably faces the challenge of opening up Deleuze and Guattari's notoriously difficult Anti-Oedipus" not only to newcomers, but also to experienced readers of their works, who will thereby benefit enormously from the clarity and rigor of Holland's study ." -Charles J. Stivale, Wayne State University
