    ITEM#: 11219642

    Felix Guattari (1930-1992), post-'68 French psychoanalyst and philosopher, is the author of Anti-Oedipus (with Gilles Deleuze), and a number of books published by Semiotext(e), including The Anti-Oedipus Papers, and Molecular Revolution in Brazil (with Suely Rolnik).

    Chaosophy is an introduction to Felix Guattari's groundbreaking theories of"schizo-analysis": a process meant to replace Freudian interpretation with a morepragmatic, experimental, and collective approach rooted in reality. Unlike Freud, who utilizedneuroses as his working model, Guattari adopted the model of schizophrenia--which he believed to bean extreme mental state induced by the capitalist system itself, and one that enforces neurosis as away of maintaining normality. Guattari's post-Marxist vision of capitalism provides a new definitionnot only of mental illness, but also of the micropolitical means for its subversion. Chaosophyincludes such provocative pieces as "Everybody Wants to Be a Fascist," a group of texts onGuattari's collaborative work with Gilles Deleuze (including the appendix to Anti-Oedipus, notavailable in the English edition), and "How Martians Make Love," a roundtable discussionwith Guattari, Lotringer, Catherine Clement, and Serge Leclaire from 1972 (still unpublished inFrench). This new, expanded edition features a new introduction by Francois Dosse (author of a newbiography of Guattari and Gilles Deleuze) and a range of additional essays, including "FrancoBasaglia: Guerrilla Psychiatrist," "The Transference," "Semiological Subjection,Semiotic Enslavement," "The Place of the Signifier in the Institution," and"Three Billion Perverts on the Stand."
