With Anti-Oedipus in 1972, Félix Guattari and Gilles Deleuze investigated one of the most daring intellectual adventures of our time, updating both psychoanalysis and Marxism in light of a more radical and "constructivist" vision of capitalism. Assembled here for the first time, Guattari's notes, addressed to and annotated by Deleuze, reveal an inventive, visionary "conceptor," arguably one of the more enigmatic figures in philosophy and social-political theory today. The Anti-Oedipus Papers (1969-1973) are supplemented by substantial journal entries describing Guattari's turbulent relationship with his teacher Jacques Lacan, apprehensions about Anti-Oedipus and personal accounts of his life.

Félix Guattari (1930-1992), political activist and anti-psychiatrist, met well-known philosopher Gilles Deleuze in Paris in May 1968 and co-authored with him five landmark works including the infamous Anti-Oedipus (1972) and A Thousand Plateaus (1980). He also wrote Chaosophy and Soft Subversions, both published by Semiotext(e).
