Difference, bodies, desire: The collaborative thought of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari

Science Fiction Film & Television (2010), 3, (1), 93–106.

Abstract

The two of us wrote Anti-Oedipus together. Since each of us was several, there was already quite a crowd. We have made use of everything that came within range, what was closest as well as farthest away. We have assigned clever pseudonyms to prevent recognition. Why have we kept our own names? Out of habit, purely out of habit. To make ourselves unrecognizable in turn. To render imperceptible, not ourselves, but what makes us act, feel, and think. Also because it is nice to talk like everybody else, to say the sun rises, when everyone knows it's only a manner of speaking. To reach not the point where one no longer says I, but the point where it is of no importance whether one says I. We are no longer ourselves. Each will know his own. We have been aided, inspired, multiplied.
