Various Contributors, Deleuze and the Schizoanalysis of Cinema
In 1971, Deleuze and Guattari’s collaborative work, Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia caused an international sensation by fusing Marx with a radically rewritten Freud to produce a new approach to critical thinking, which they provocatively called “schizoanalysis.” Deleuze and the Schizoanalysis of Cinema explores the possibilities of using this concept to investigate cinematic works in both the Hollywood and non-Hollywood tradition. It attempts to define what a schizoanalysis of cinema might be and introduces a variety of ways in which a schizoanalysis might be applied. This collection opens up a fresh field of inquiry for Deleuze scholars and poses an exciting challenge to cinema studies in general. Featuring some of the most important cinema studies scholars working on Deleuze and Guattari today, Deleuze and the Schizoanalysis of Cinema is a cutting edge collection that will set the agenda for future work in this area.
