I've had this beef with Deleuzian panegyrics to autism. Don't they reproduce the primitivism with which immediacy = who we really are = good versus bad, bad, reflexive loops = artifice = bad bad civilization?
What is avant-garde about this?
And what in this speaks to the immense suffering of autism?
Is autism chosen because it's even more hardwired than schizophrenia, D&G's favorite mode? More "primitive," therefore?
