A Shock to Thought brings together essays that explore Deleuze and Guattari's philosophy of expression in a number of contemporary contexts. It will be of interest to all those in philosophy, cultural studies and art theory. The volume also contains an interview with Guattari which clearly restates the 'aesthetic paradigm' that organizes both his and Deleuze's work.


'There is no doubt that many, if not most, of the publications cursorily considered here will contribute extensively to the increasingly fraught debates around immanence-related topics, making for some engaging, significant and exciting developments in the next few years.' - Critical and Cultural Theory
