With four books
Deleuze, Guattary travel to Iran
The long-held exchange of ideas between French philosopher Gilles Deleuze and radical psychoanalyst Felix Guattari has resulted in four books all of which are becoming available in Persian.
IBNA: Peyman Gholami, one of the translators, said: "Deleuze is an experimental philosopher who believes in life and is influenced by Nietzsche and Spinoza. Guattari is a radical and practical psychoanalyst, a political activist and also a schizo-analyst."
He added: "The result of Deleuze and Guattari's exchange of ideas is four books that are converted into Persian by Mohadaseh Zare, Iman Ganji, Zohre Eksiri, and me. "A Thousand Plateaus" is converted into Persian by all of us, "What is Philosophy" is translated by Zohreh Eksiri and me, and "Anti-Oedipus" by Iman Ganji and Reza Sirvan.
Gholami added that now the fourth book – "Kafka: Toward a Minor Literature" is accessible in Persian with the translation of Nastaran Gouran and Reza Sirvan.
According to him, the most important aspect of Deleuze and Guattari's ideas is movement towards the canon of thought. In fact, thought is always moving forward. In their books Deleuze nad Guattari want to understand movements, life, power, desire, politics and also the context in which little and big happenings take place.
He went on to explain that while 'Anti-Oedipus' offers a systematic psychoanalysis and the political desire, "A Thousand Plateaus" covers a wide span of subjects from botany, astronomy, functionology, emigrantology, ethnology, mathematics, semiotics, sociopolitical organizations, music, romantic situation and even maternal lullabies.
"What is Philosophy?", "A Thousand Plateaus", and "Kafka: Toward a Minor Literature" are going to be published by Rokhdade No. "Anti-Oedipus" is under translation now.
