The book series entitled «The Strong of the Future» deals with accelerationist philosophy, in particular with the thought based on Nietzsche, Klossowski and Acéphale magazine, Deleuze and Guattari, Foucault and Lyotard.
“In the famous introduction of the American edition of the volume Anti-Oedipus (1977) Foucault defined Deleuze and Guattari’s book as an introduction to a non-fascist life (Introduction à la vie non-fasciste). He referred to it as to an ethical work conceived to fight the most strategic enemy, namely fascism, as well as a way to experience a new life amended from the worst cancer. The real question is: which behaviour shall one conduct to avoid becoming fascist? The essay represents a work of «Ars politica» of resistance that could be openly defined as anti-fascist. What is then the difference between non-fascist and anti-fascist? Which revolutionary path for a non-fascist world? To answer these and other questions from a diverging position of the traditional Left, the essay “Acceleration, Revolution and Money in Deleuze and Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus” inspects and investigates the accelerationist politics that Foucault, Klossowski, Deleuze and Guattari activated in the 70s. Such accelerationist «ars politica» is destined to continue radically changing the nature of the Left in XXI century.”
