Reviews

Constantin Boundas, one of Deleuze's foremost translators, disseminators and interpreters, has assembled a fine collection of essays exploring one of the most important questions of our time. Eco-philosophy extends well beyond exegesis and commentary to a radical transformation of philosophy by way of ecological thinking. The authors gathered in this volume include rising stars in Deleuze studies alongside established authors. This book will be important reading for anyone working in the environmental humanities. * Claire Colebrook, Professor of English, Philosophy, and Gender and Sexuality Studies, Penn State University, USA * This important and timely book will be useful to both those familiar with the work of Guattari and Deleuze and those coming to the fields of schizoanalysis and ecosophy for the first time. It not only carefully examines the sources of both fields in Freud, Lacan and Marx and Guattari's engagements with anti-psychiatry (at the La Borde clinic) and political activism, but also explicitly and painstakingly adds environmental ecology to the social and psychological ecologies featured in Anti-Oedipus. Tracing the development of Guattari's work beyond the earlier collaborative work with Deleuze, it goes on to explore some of the implications of schizoanalysis and ecosophy for diverse practices in the theater, schooling, art and dream therapy, and ethics. The kind of careful and cogent explications of Guattari's contributions to theory, therapy, and activism found in these essays is long overdue. * Eugene W. Holland, Professor Emeritus of Comparative Studies, The Ohio State University, USA * It is wonderful to have these new essays about Guattari's practice of psychoanalysis and the history of concepts and political controversies around it; readers of Guattari's theoretical work have been missing this, and this collection gives it to us. Beginning with Anne Querrien's fascinating reflections on the La Borde clinic in the 1960's, hearing testimony about the history of these lively debates (populated by Parisian Marxists, Catalan refugees, and feminist activists), is immensely helpful for understanding Guattari's extremely difficult philosophical writings. It is great to see Guattari's abstract conceptual apparatus tied back to clinical practices. * Jay Lampert, Professor of Philosophy, Duquesne University, USA *
