Seneca's Oedipus [Michael Rutenberg's Translation]



Anti-Oedipus is widely recognized as one of the most influential texts in philosophy to have appeared in the last 30 years. The first collaborative effort of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Anti-Oedipus is an exemplary critique of orthodox psychoanalysis which revolutionized postmodernism. Eugene W. Holland provides an excellent introduction to this most challenging of texts. He lucidly presents the theoretical concerns behind Anti-Oedipus and explores with probing clarity the diverse influences of Marx, Freud, Nietzsche and Kant on the development of Deleuze & Guattari's complex thinking. Deleuze and Guattari's Anti-Oedipus: Introduction to Schizoanalysis is a unique and original guide to Anti-Oedipus. Holland masterfully reveals not only the importance of Deleuze and Guattari's early thought but also examines the wider implications of their work in revitalizing Marxism, environmentalism, feminism and cultural studies.

Foucault: power as primary

Deleuze and Guattari: desire as primary

‘One must not look for a ‘philosophy’ amid the extraordinary profusion of new notions and surprise concepts: Anti-Oedipus is not a flashy Hegel. I think that Anti-Oedipus can best be read as an ‘art’. (...) Questions that are less concerned with why this or that than with how to proceed. How does one introduce desire into thought, into discourse, into action? (...) Anti-Oedipus is a book of ethics…’ Michel Foucault, Preface to Anti-Oedipus


"Anatoly wants to create an “American Oedipus,” bringing this two-and-a-half thousand year old play into relevance to modern audiences. Oedipus is rarely performed, and then only at an educational level, because, like Shakespeare, it can be really tough to listen to if the performers don’t know what they’re saying." *
