Introduction -- Deleuze and Guattari and political theory -- Dramatization as critical method -- Dramatization : the ontological claims -- Language and the method of dramatization -- Cinema and the method of dramatization -- Events and the method of dramatization -- Conclusion
The method of dramatization has received scant attention in the literature on Deleuze and Guattari. This book offers a new reading of this method and provides an interpretation of the role it plays across a wide range of their co-authored texts. It is also argued throughout that dramatization can and should be seen as a distinct and compelling method in political studies. Moreover, putting this method to work in the analysis of contemporary cultural and political forms establishes a new relationship between political studies and the world of art. In establishing this relationship, the book addresses and responds to the criticisms of Deleuze and Guattari's work made by, amongst others, Ranciere and Badiou. The outcome of this engagement is that Deleuze and Guattari's contribution to political theory is understood within a new framework: one that forges a methodological link between the political, art and events. It is concluded that political theory, to realize the artistry of its method, must become an event
