Littérature et émancipation politique à travers la déterritorialisation

Polayna Tidre

pp. 103–119

This article is an attempt to show the affinities of a method that could be called déterritorialisation, existing between Deleuze/Guattari and Marx in their analyses of different kinds of minorities. We will first juxtapose, on the one hand, Deleuze and Guattari’s characterisation of a minor literature in opposition to a major literature (Kafka : pour une littérature mineure, of 1975) and, on the other hand, Marx’s critic of Bauer’s position, who desapproves of Jewish people’s goal of political emancipation (Zur Judenfrage, Einleitung of the Kritik der Hegelschen Rechtsphilosophie, both published in 1844). Hence, we will be able to notice the common plea of the authors for a displacement in the analysis, from a certain sphere – familiar, preferred of psychoanalysis (Deleuze/Guattari), religious, object of the young Hegelians (Marx) – to another – burocratical or, in both cases, socio-political. Finally we aim to demonstrate that there is not only a similarity between the methods of the authors, but also in their strategies, which they propose as resources for resistance.
