During the spring semester, we will continue with Our inroduction to Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy. During spring semester we are going to read selected chapters in Anti Oeidipus (L’antiOedipe), the work written conjointly by Gilles Deleuze and with Félixe Guattari. The book develops a number of central terms such as re- and deterritorialization, frequently used in academic literature. It also touches upon a plthora of 20th century cultural and philosophical fields of investigation. Both psycho-analysis and Marxism are highly relevant for an accurate understanding of this work and we are going to explain, discuss and scrutanize issues and arguments presented by Deleuze. The course presupposs a general understanding of terms such as Univocity of Being, the plane of immanence, simulacrum, as these concepts have been discussed during the first part of this course.
The course is carried out in two forms, lectures and group discussions. Lectures will comprise close reading of original texts, explanation of arguments and critical discussion about the historical development of Deleuze, as the central philosophical figure in the period 1970-1990 in France and beyond that internationally.
Group exercises consist of group discussion based on student presentations. In the middle of the semester, students will write a shorter mid-term paper. At the end of the course, students are expected to write a paper in which; 1. they prove their ability to treat at least one central concept or central text by one of the thinkers discussed during the course, 2. They demonstrate their ability to analyse arguments critically, and relate the concepts to both a historical context and to the Chinese thought.
This course provides critical knowledge on one of the most important Continental philosophical traditions in Europe, namely Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy.
These philosophers will be discussed in connection to classic philosophy, notably Karl Marx, George W.F. Hegel,Baruch Spinoza. Besides these classical references, there will be references to a wider intellectual milieu in Post-War period which includes Jacques Lacan, Pierre Macherey, Alain Badiou, Slavoj zizek, etc.
