Introduction: Towards a schizoanalytic criticism

Chapter


Abstract


  • This book is an attempt to put schizoanalysis to work in the field of literary

    studies and map out new ways of thinking the theory and practice of literature

    inspired by Deleuze and Guattari's work. In their final collaboration, What

    Is Philosophy? (1994), Deleuze and Guattari argue that the specific job of

    philosophy is to create concepts - which they rigorously distinguish from

    scientific 'functions' - while the job of artists is to create 'blocs of sensation'

    made up of 'affects and percepts' (Deleuze and Guattari 1994: 164).
