The concept of assemblage (agencement) developed by Deleuze and Guattari is a key term in various contemporary discussions. However, little has been studied the role that Guattari plays in the elaboration of this notion. This article aims to study Guattari’s solo work prior to Mille Plateaux (1980), a book where the term assemblage is central, in order to identify the conceptual assumptions and Guattarian transversal lines from which the construction of said concept unfolds. This is how a series of texts by Guattari, written between the 60s and 70s, is reviewed, where it is possible to distinguish a thematic continuity on the revolutionary political position of desire that receives the successive names of subject-group, schizoid pole and assemblage.
