Deleuze and Anarchism

Aragorn Eloff

Edinburgh University Press

In this chapter I propose that Deleuze and Guattari's work does in fact suggest an anarchist political sensibility; an anarchism that is able both to analyse and respond effectively to the conditions of the present and to propose and create something genuinely new. In fact, I argue, it is perhaps only anarchism - a life politics of anarchism that is the differenciation of anarchy as the becoming of the crowned anarchy and nomadic distributions of the virtual - that sufficiently responds to the full scope of the political philosophy Deleuze and Guattari developed throughout their lives, which is perhaps why so many anarchists have come to recognise aspects of their theories and practices in the active nihilism of joyful encounters.
