Abstract

At a time of general crisis and continuing Anglophone depoliticization of ‘French Theory’, it is crucial to affirm the affinities of Guattari with Marxism, including with Althusser. The particular uptake of Guattari in geography is submitted here to a critique by focusing on a series of ironies, which index the deliberately anti-Marxist habits of certain corners of our discipline.
