Deleuze, Femininity and the Specter of Poststructuralist Politics: Variations on the Materiality of Rhetoric

By Matthew S. May

During this thesis I reconsider the materiality of rhetoric in a minor key. I overview
poststructural and psychoanalytic endeavors to place rhetoric from in the
postmodern and poststructural critique of the topic. I movement past the good judgment of
influence (dependent on a mistaken perception of item) and hermeneutics (the
correspondingly fallacious methodology). In thisendeavor, I essentially enlist Deleuze and
Guattari (1987) for a conceptual gear that enlivens the “thinness” of rhetoric’s
(neo)Aristotelian conceptual layout (cf. Gaonkar, 1997a, 1997b). I provide Monster(2003)
as a case research, examining the discursive expression of nondiscursive summary machines to
draw out the reterritorializations of the latter. spotting the impossibility of whole
reterritorialization I map one artifact that reinvests distinction in itself, Dancer within the
Dark(2000). ultimately, within the epilogue I offer a quick recapitulation of adlescent politics,
and provide a summarization of the software of rhetoric.
