Chaosophyis an introduction to Flix Guattari's groundbreaking theories of "t;schizo-analysis"t;: a process meant to replace Freudian interpretation with a more pragmatic, experimental, and collective approach rooted in reality. Unlike Freud, who utilized neuroses as his working model, Guattari adopted the model of schizophrenia--which he believed to be an extreme mental state induced by the capitalist system itself, and one that enforces neurosis as a way of maintaining normality. Guattari's post-Marxist vision of capitalism provides a new definition not only of mental illness, but also of the micropolitical means for its subversion. Chaosophyincludes such provocative pieces as "t;Everybody Wants to Be a Fascist,"t; a group of texts on Guattari's collaborative work with Gilles Deleuze (including the appendix to Anti-Oedipus, not available in the English edition), and "t;How Martians Make Love,"t; a roundtable discussion with Guattari, Lotringer, Catherine Clment, and Serge Leclaire from 1972 (still unpublished in French). This new, expanded edition features a new introduction by Franois Dosse (author of a new biography of Guattari and Gilles Deleuze) and a range of additional essays, including "t;Franco Basaglia: Guerrilla Psychiatrist,"t; "t;The Transference,"t; "t;Semiological Subjection, Semiotic Enslavement,"t; "t;The Place of the Signifier in the Institution,"t; and "t;Three Billion Perverts on the Stand."t;
