Anti-Oedipus en-proces: A Comparative Analysis of Kristeva and Deleuze & Guattari

Cameron Ellis


the current thesis is an try to convey into discussion that seem to be appreciably varied techniques of negotiating subjectivity in overdue Western Modernity. right here the idea of Julia Kristeva in addition to Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari are totally engaged. those thinkers, the latter being regarded as one, have beforehand remained strangers to each other. hence a lot confusion has gathered relating their respective philosophical, in addition to social/political tasks. I soak up the location that Deleuze and Guattari's account of subjectivity is a commendable try to comprehend a selected kind of ancient topic: past due smooth Western guy. although I declare that their account comes up brief insofar as I argue that they lack the theoretical language in an effort to absolutely, and effectively, make their element. therefore I argue that their method doesn't withstand its personal claims. to the contrary, by means of embracing the psychoanalytic culture -staying fairly as regards to the Freudian and Kleinian faculties of idea - I argue that it's in truth Kristeva that's higher built to supply an account of this actual topic. substantial time is invested in fleshing out the concept of the opposite in as far as this different is relevant to the structure of subjectivity. This different -in as far as this different is to be present in Kristeva's
notion of the chora - is whatever I declare that Deleuze and Guattari easily undervalued.
