Schizoanalysis – Meeting a Patient as a Singular Event – A Philosophical Reflection

This inheritance from traditional methodologies is fundamentally problematic for a horizontalist practice that emphasizes intra-subjective transformation (becoming-other) over relations between subjects. This paper investigates the potential of schizoanalysis to provide an alternative to traditional research methodologies. Schizoanalysis was developed through the collaborative work of French ‘anti-psychiatristFélix Guattari and philosopher Gilles Deleuze. It has been used to effect change in education (from militant research to primary-school teaching and proliferate net-based learning environments); health care (radical nursing, e.g., revolts against “best evidence” practices); art (especially avant-garde and interventionist/tactical media practices); and grassroots activist organising.
