Not so much a work of theory as a manifesto. A special guattrai should be made to the obvious parallels to the writings of Murray Bookchin and his concepts of social ecology, though unlike Guattari, Bookchin does not abandon the Marxist and Anarchist theoretical foundations of class-conflict and he has denounced the likes of Guattari and Deleuze as ”lifestylists” and his conception of change focus far less on the individual.

Actual essay is only like 50 pages but footnotes and epilogue essay on transversality which was totally needed, cuz as soon as I finished Guattari’s part I was like what the fuck is that anyways were actually quite informative and the bibliography makes for a good reading list I want to read Bateson!

Its like even my grandma could understand theory, and that’s startling consisdering how many years it took me to wrap my head around the Conceptual Psychosis in Guattari’s Chaosmosis – but alas, he was trying to spark some kind of grassroots deep ecology movement in the 90’s.
