Félix Guattari in the Age of Semiocapitalism

Deleuze Studies Volume 6, Issue 2

Edited by Gary Genosko

Paperback (Print on demand)
£17.99

The year 2012 marks the 20th anniversary of Félix Guattari’s untimely passing in 1992 at the age of 62. This volume acknowledges the prescience of his insight into capital as a semiotic operator, which has been taken up by theorists of immaterial labour in the post-Autonomist movement, and invites his readers to meditate on the relevance of his thought for a critical diagnosis of present and future mutations of capitalism and labour in the turbulent global info-machinic ecologies of our time. Guattari tried to imagine a post-media era in which new subjectivities could blossom and experiments in controlled chaoticization would flourish. The essays assembled here answer why, and how, to read Guattari today.
