Spinoza survives the PoMo’s

Entertaining review from Eugene Wolters at Critical Theory, of  Francois Dosse “Intersecting Lives” of the philosophical odd-couple  Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. (Hat tip to Judith Stout @judystout1)

Apart from the madness and chaotic activism from pre-1968 Paris, the lives intersect with the name-dropping list of all those you’d expect from Lacan, Foucault, Baudrillard, Derrida and more. Less expected, for me anyway, was to see the Spinoza references as a common thread of sanity despite the lunatics having taken over the asylum.

The buzz-cloud also gives a clue to the material covered by the Critical Theory blog. Entertaining and a useful resource.
