Deleuze’s Revision of Freud’s thesis on sadism/masochism
The assignment is posted below and based off of Freud’s book "Three essays on the theory of sexuality" and Deleuze’s book "Masochism:Coldness and Cruelty"
Summarize Deleuze’s revision of Freud’s thesis on sadism/masochism. (In doing so you will also have to summarize Freud.)
How, and why, does he separate the two as different "languages"?
How does he apparently undermine this seperation (much as Freud gives with one hand and takes away with the other)?
What are the aesthetics of masochism (in comparison to sadism)?
