Revolutionary Desire

About

In a world such as this, there is no living desire that could not of itself cause the system to explode, or that would not make the system dissolve at one end where everything would end up following behind and being swallowed up—a question of régime. — Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari

This blog was begun as a project diary for a bachelor’s thesis. The project was initially started as an attempt to survey the works of the Freudo-Marxists, selectively synthesizing them into a coherent theory. Now, I conceive of the piece more as a birth-struggle. Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus fundamentally challenged, from the inside-out, many of the initial aims of the project. I see its role now as that of surveying major Freudo-Marxist theoretical underpinnings in order to put them in the context of the Anti-Oedipus critique. This blog is a place for me to write more freely, hopefully overcoming writer’s block in collaboration with others exploring the same issues.

    I’ve just started a deleuzecanada blog myself. I’m looking for serious readers (and practitioners) of deleuze out there. Do you know of any?
    Perhaps in future we can work from inside one blog (as teams)and complement our own individual researches.

    My particular interest is in deleuzian applications to poetry/poetics.

      Thanks for linking to your blog. I will link to it in my blogroll and subscribe in order to get a feeling for what you have in mind. I would certainly be open to collaborative work if the opportunity arises.
