Deleuze and Anarchism (2019) edited by Chantelle Gray Van Heerden, Aragorn Eloff

I just got my advance copy of Deleuze and Anarchism. Congratulations to the editors on this excellent book!

Explores Deleuze and Guattari’s own diverse conceptions of anarchism and expands it in the spirit of their philosophy

This collection of 13 essays addresses and explores Deleuze and Guattari’s relationship to the notion of anarchism: in the diverse ways that they conceived of and referred to it throughout their work, and also more broadly in terms of the spirit of their philosophy and in their critique of capitalism and the State.

Both Deleuze and Guattari were deeply affected by the events of May ’68 and an anarchist sensibility permeates their philosophy. However, they never explicitly sustained a discussion of anarchism in their work. Their concept of anarchism is diverse and they referred to in very different senses throughout their writings. This is the first collection to bring Deleuze and Guattari together with anarchism in a focused and sustained way.
