Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author's interest in Deleuze and Guattari is quite specific - the connection between Marx and theology in their work. The author engages in close critical commentary on a few extraordinary pages in A Thousand Plateaus called 'On Several Régimes of Signs’, as well as the plateau on the war machine, 'Treatise on Nomadology', which proposes to read as part of the chapter on régimes of signs. Through these two texts by Deleuze and Guattari, the author highlights an overriding concern with the patterns of resistance against despotism. Tribal pre-signifiers, with their segmented structures and expressive signs, are by no means the only form of external opposition as far as Deleuze and Guattari are concerned. Deleuze, Guattari and the author have trekked from the segmented tribe to the despotic state via the nomadic war-band.

Keywords: despotic regime; Félix Guattari; Gilles Deleuze; nomads; tribal pre-signifiers
