This chapter investigates the relationships and tensions between Freud's, Foucault's and Deleuze's understandings of children's sexuality. There is some inconsistency, they argue, between how Deleuze writes about children and sexuality in The Logic of Sense and how he approaches the same topics with Guattari in their Capitalism and Schizophrenia texts. Looking particularly into how this ambiguous relation to psychoanalysis informs his writings about the characters of Freud's Little Hans and Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland, the authors suggest that Deleuze's understanding of children and sexuality is marked by unsettled gender trouble as well as an unresolved involvement in Oedipal theories.
