New book on Malabou and Deleuze & Guattari

Gabriel Schenker has a new book out called Organic Texture (Atropos Press) staging a dialogue between Malabou's plasticity and Deleuze and Guattari's organic strata.

Here is the description:

What would happen to Deleuze and Guattari's organic strata and body without organs if they were to have been constructed not in relation to the geneticism of the sixties but to the epigenetic field that boomed in the 2000's? This work starts from a reconfiguration of the organic basis of their theory which, in dialogue with epigenetics, neuroscience, and the work of Catherine Malabou, leads to a new understanding of the organism. The organism is no longer a fixed and hierarchical prison keeping us from exploring our potentials but a texture weaved between cells and emotions, bodies and discourses, individuals and groups, organic and inorganic. No longer a stratic reality to be repressed but the very basis of our life potentials.
