The 'structural necessity' of the body without organs

Chapter


Abstract


  • The body without organs is the only 'practical object of schizoanalysis' (Deleuze and Guattari 1987: 203). From the perspective of what I want to call 'Practical Deleuzism', there could be no more important concept in the entire Deleuze and Guattari arsenal. Yet one struggles to answer the basic question: 'what is the body without organs?'
