Description

Guattari Reframed presents a timely and urgent rehabilitation of one of the twentieth century's most engaged and engaging cultural philosophers. Best known as an activist and practising psychiatrist, Guattari's work is increasingly understood as both eerily prescient and vital in the context of contemporary culture. Employing the language of visual culture and concrete examples drawn from it, this book introduces and reassesses the major concepts developed throughout Guattari's writings and his call to transform the deadening homogeneity of contemporary existence into the 'universe of creative enchantments'. Paul Elliott asserts the significance of Guattari as a revolutionary philosopher and cultural theorist, and invites the reader to transform both their understanding of his work and their lives through his ideas.
