Joë Bousquet (Narbonne, 1897 – Carcassonne, 1950) was a French poet who was permanently paralyzed in 1918. He then led a secluded existence, which fed an expression of thought that had a transparent purity. He wrote several collections of poems, scattered fragments of a private diary, and an important correspondence. His work as admired by many famous French writers of the last century, including Char, Aragon, Breton, Gide, Valery, and, most notably, Deleuze.
Pierre-Félix Guattari (1930-1992) was a French pioneer of institutional psychotherapy, as well as the founder of both Schizoanalysis and Ecosophy .
Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was a French philosopher. From the early 1960s until his death, Deleuze wrote many influential works on philosophy, literature, film, and fine art. His most popular books were the two volumes of Capitalism and Schizophrenia: “Anti-Oedipus” (1972) and “A Thousand Plateaus” (1920), both co-wirtten with Pierre-Félix Guattari.
Deleuze and Guattari went against both the Freudian understanding and the capitalist theory that desires from a sense of lack, and that the only way to meet those desires is to consume. Instead, they claim that desire is a productive force.
