Fragments (Formerly Tales from the Asylum)
This chapter stories a long-standing interest in the life and thought of the psychoanalyst and philosopher, Félix Guattari (1930–1992), by foregrounding his lately acquired monomania for cars, and with driving. Drawing on Guattari’s work and various biographical accounts, the chapter assembles a collection of fragments, disjecta, which never quite gain a consistency of coherence. This experiment in expression troubles how we might biograph the lives of theorists we think with, and the practices of thinking alongside. At the same time, and by way of sub-context, this collection—such as it is—looks to stage a series of inexplicit encounters between non-representational styles of working and storying of lives.
