Félix Guattari arrived at Château de la Borde in 1956 to collaborate in an experimental psychiatric clinic with Jean Oury, the founder and then director. During his time at La Borde, and in conversation with Gilles Deleuze, Guattari developed the concept of transversality as an ethical, political, and philosophical approach to maximizing linkages between previously unexplored singularities in a field, and to create connections in other conceptual topographies at different levels of discursivity. This statement examines the connections between the work of Guattari at La Borde and his relationship to Lacanian psychoanalysis to analyze his framework of transversality in the context of the possibilities and limits for psychoanalysis and transgender analyses.
