Deleuze & Guattari Anti-Ødipus

Det er litt som å pule et pinnsvin å lese denne boken. Jeg har repetert den for å komme videre med tekster som bygger på denne og bind to i det komplette verket som heter “Kapitalisme og Schizofreni”. Bind to heter “A Thousand Plateus” og den gjorde jeg meg stor nytte av i hovedoppgaven min som ligger her; “Kapitalisme og Medieteknologi”

Deleuze and Guattari analyse the relationship of desire to reality and to capitalist society in particular; they address questions of human psychology, economics, society, and history.[1] Anti-Oedipus is divided into four sections. In the first, Deleuze and Guattari outline a “materialist psychiatry” modeled on the unconscious in its relationship with society and its productive processes. They introduce their concept of “desiring-production” (which inter-relates “desiring machines” and a “body without organs”). In the second section, Deleuze and Guattari offer a critique of Sigmund Freud’s psychoanalysis that focuses on its theory of the Oedipus complex. In the third section, Deleuze and Guattari re-write Karl Marx’s materialist account of the history of society’s modes of production as a development through “primitive,” “despotic,” and “capitalist” societies and details their different organisations of production, “inscription” (which corresponds to Marx’s “distribution” and “exchange”), and consumption. In the final section, they develop a critical practice that they call “schizoanalysis.”
