Deleuze and the Contemporary World

Kenneth Surin

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter proposes that in a world where transcendental guarantees no longer hold sway, we need to seek out a new basis for solidarity. It argues that Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's rejection of the concept of ideology clearly stems from their conviction that the Althusserian conception of ideology relies on the discredited base-superstructure distinction, and suggests that they provide a fascinating narrative when addressing the question of political sovereignty in the plateau entitled ‘Treatise on Nomadology’. The chapter also discusses Deleuze and Guattari's view on Georges Dumézil's dualism of the shaman-king and the priest-jurist.

Keywords:   solidarity, Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, ideology, Althusserian, political sovereignty, Treatise on Nomadology, Georges Dumézil, dualism
