Deleuze and Sex

Ronald Bogue

Edinburgh University Press

In this chapter, Ronald Bogue reads a set of fictional texts to show how they make it possible to develop our understanding of the consequences of Deleuze and Guattari's work on sexuality. That science fiction provides an opportunity for playing out various philosophical enquiries is well known, and in this chapter Bogue takes advantage of this to test the potentials but also the dangers that come with Deleuze and Guattari's ideas about sexuality.
