Between Desire and Pleasure

Frida Beckman

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter tests Deleuze’s separation of desire and pleasure against Foucault’s division of the two concepts, a separation that takes his theories of sexuality in quite a different direction than Deleuze. Foucault’s History of Sexuality also elucidates the historical and cultural specificity of Deleuze’s understanding of pleasure and the chapter serves to underline the importance of taking Deleuze beyond his own delimited historical context.

Keywords:   Foucault, History, Psychoanalysis
