Example text

In one of the more interesting studies drawing on both the later Deleuze and Guattari and Foucault, Jonathan Crary links a development in the nineteenth and early-twentieth-century social sciences—inquiry into the nature of attention, and its attendant pathological variations—to a concomitant development in capitalist industrial production that was placing historically novel and conflicting demands and pressures on the attention capacities of individual workers. As the logic of greater efficiency in mass production demanded that manufacturing processes be increasingly rationalized or “Taylorized”— changed, that is, from a kind of production in which a single craftsman might stay with the product from its raw to its finished state, to a kind where a deskilled laborer was responsible only for the repetition of a tiny segment of the productive process—the necessity of each worker paying close attention (so that each repetition produces an identical result) increases, even as the stress of the harsh, repetitive work environment and the alienation from any sense of the product as a completed product makes the difficulty of that worker’s MODERN NARRATIVES OF PARANOIA ▲ 35 paying attention, because of boredom and mental fatigue, increase proportionally.

Schreber’s MODERN NARRATIVES OF PARANOIA ▲ 33 dual role as both the paradigmatic paranoid and as a man centrally involved in the institutional and discursive apparatuses of post-unification Germany allows Deleuze and Guattari to discuss him as just such a site through which the contradictory flows of modernity pass. For Deleuze and Guattari, Schreber’s madness oscillates between radically “paranoiac” intensifications of the nationalist-statist patterns of hierarchy and regimentation (intensifications of his Oedipal identifications) and his schizoid irruptions of psychotic “desiring-production” resonate with Bismarckian Germany’s surge in industrial and colonial capitalist economic development.

Schreber’s vision is illegitimate ultimately because of the way his representation of deviance is improperly gendered. 9 These two narrative possibilities for organizing identification by establishing differently “gendered” relations to authority correspond to two different manifestations of paranoia. While the most common image of paranoia is that of the troubled, suspicious, hostile, fundamentally isolated loner who imagines him (or less often her-) self at the center of a conspiracy—suffering from what is called paranoid bias or projective distortion—paranoia achieves its truly social dimension if this figure becomes the leader of a group of people attracted by the subjective coherence his or her narrative provides.
