Example text

This is our problem with desire: it is 36 the economy of the possible that emerges from a rupture in the economy of the "already-there," the economy of the stratified, the economy of repetition. " W hat is in question with desire is creativity, a change in the system, a breaking-up of structures. And this is something that is not at all an anti-scientific matter. It could perhaps be a matter of anoth­ er kind of analysis, which could be at the same time pragmatic, political, scientific, social.

This is what I call desire. There, where everything seemed impossible, something is created. What is love between a young man and a young woman? It is not at all the wish to possess partial objects, to take possession of a territory. It cannot be reduced to such a libidinal operation because it is first and foremost the fact that in a closed universe, in two closed universes, things appear that pre­ viously seemed impossible. It's because of the fact that these two people, who both are individually encircled in themselves, in their families, in their egos, begin to see something else appear, some other possibility.

Guattari: I think these are formulas that I would no longer reit­ erate. They are formulas of a specific era, put forth at a certain moment when it was really necessary to move away from psycho­ analysis and Lacanianism, which at that time were very powerful. During this era I wrote Anti-Oedipus with Gilles Deleuze, and we wanted to say that psychoanalytical models were essentially mod­ els inherited from a certain conception of the family and the rel­ ative neuroses among family members. These are what we called the Oeclipalization concepts.
