The Psychoanalysis of Sense (Paperback)

Guillaume Collett


Examines Deleuze's psychoanalytic and philosophical engagement with the Lacanian SchoolGuillaume Collett questions to what extent we can locate Deleuze within the Lacanian School during the late-1960s, prior to Guattari. In so doing, he offers a new, integrated reading of Deleuze's 'The Logic of Sense' (1969) by understanding it as a 'psychoanalysis of sense', and gives a new interpretation of Deleuze's conception of philosophy itself.'The Psychoanalysis of Sense' shows that Deleuze was not merely aware of the debates animating the Lacanian School during the 1960s: he sought to contribute to them. Emphasising his appropriation of the work of post-Lacanian Serge Leclaire, Collett shows how Deleuze constructed a more singular and immanent theory of the linguistic structure of the unconscious granting the erogenous body a larger structuring role. Key FeaturesThe first book devoted to situating Deleuze's 1960s work on psychoanalysis within the context of the Lacanian SchoolShows how Deleuze drew on Lewis Carroll and Sacher-Masoch to immanentise the work of the Lacanian SchoolDevelops a new reading of The Logic of Sense by viewing it as a meta-philosophical precursor to What is Philosophy?
