Book Review: Dosse: Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari: Intersecting Lives
A review of Dosse, Deleuze and Guattari
The ‘philosophy of desire’ was born in 1969, Serge Gainsbourg’s année érotique, when the radical psychoanalyst Félix Guattari met the philosopher Gilles Deleuze. Today, it’s hard to imagine them not knowing each other, and easy to forget how unlikely their partnership was. François Dosse begins his biography of the two men with their first encounter, a year after the ‘events’ of 1968, which, more than anything, inspired their collaboration.
Guattari was not quite 40 when he drove to the Limousin to meet Deleuze for the first time.
