Deleuze and the Social

This chapter focuses on Gilles Deleuze's view on the concepts on the life and in control societies. It explains that Deleuze has provided historical reconstruction of the passage of disciplinary societies to societies of control by setting out from the dynamics of difference and repetition, thereby generating new interpretations of the birth and development of capitalism. It discusses Marxian analysis of the capital-labour relation and highlights the usefulness of Deleuzian interpretation of Michel Foucault in analysing the dynamics of difference and repetition.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, life, control societies, disciplinary societies, difference, repetition, Marxian analysis, capital-labour relation, Michel Foucault
