As an analyst, philosopher and militant, Félix Guattari anticipated decentralised forms of political activism that have become increasingly evident around the world since the events of Seattle in 1995. Lines of Flight offers an exciting introduction to the sometimes difficult and dense thinking of an increasingly important 20th century thinker.

An editorial introduction by Andrew Goffey situates the text in relation to the work of CERFI, the interdisciplinary research group with which Guattari worked since the 1960s; Guattari's own concerns (as evidenced in the IMEC archive of his papers in Normandy); his work with Deleuze and the 'Guattari effect'; and some of the social, political and cultural concerns arising in France at the start of what Guattari would later call the 'winter years'.

Providing a detailed and clearly documented account of his micropolitical critique of psychoanalytic, semiological and linguistic accounts of meaning and subjectivity, this work offers an astonishingly fresh set of conceptual tools for imaginative and engaged thinking about capitalism and effective forms of resistance to it.

About the Author:

Felix Guattari (1930-1992) was a French psychoanalyst, philosopher, social theorist and radical activist. He is best known for his collaborative work with Gilles Deleuze.

Andrew Goffey is Associate Professor in the School of Cultures, Languages, and Area Studies and the Director of the Centre for Critical Theory at the University of Nottingham, UK.
