Deleuze and the Social

Paul Patton

Edinburgh University Press

This introductory chapter explains the theme of this volume, which is about the relevance of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's philosophy for social sciences and organisation. It explains Deleuze's view that social analysis is the analysis of the event as a multiplicity, or the analysis of the sayable and the visible and their interrelation as fundamentally ontological modalities of signs. This volume seeks precision in the comprehension of the multiplicity of the social or the process of the becoming of the social itself and it explores the consequences of such an approach in regard to specific studies, that is, it seeks to develop the contours of a new social analytical practice.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, philosophy, social sciences, organisation, social analysis, multiplicity, social analytical practice
