Deleuze and the Social

Éric Alliez

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the relation between politics and art in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia. It argues that the philosophical field with a grip on our present could be, and must be, thought starting from the idea of a maximal ontological tension between Deleuze and Alan Badiou. It argues that Deleuze and Badiou constitute the extreme polarities, not only of the contemporary domain of French philosophy, but perhaps of the reality of thought as such.

Keywords:   politics, art, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, Anti-Oedipus, Alan Badiou, French philosophy, thought
