(p.30) 2 Psychoanalysis Unhinged: Deleuze with Lacan, Klein and Reich
Between Desire and Pleasure

Frida Beckman

Edinburgh University Press

The second chapter outlines the specificity of the theoretical context in which Deleuze’s understanding of desire and pleasure merges. Focusing on Jacques Lacan, Melanie Klein and Wilhelm Reich, the chapter looks for explanations for his dismissal of the potential of pleasure, as well as missed opportunities for developing a creative notion of pleasure in the psychoanalytic field from which both Deleuze and Guattari draw inspiration.
