In the Introduction to the Anti-Oedipus, I thought the section on Desire was interesting since we just came out of talking about Foucault and sexuality last week. The repression of desire is discussed in this essay in a very negative way, however. Desire, if repressed, "no matter how small, is capable of calling into question the established order of a society" (xxiii).
Do people think that this contradicts or parallels Foucault's discussion of sexuality? Foucault, however, discussed sexuality in almost a desireless sense with the concepts of scientia sexualis.
