The Deleuze Seminars is a collection of audio recordings, transcriptions, and English translations of, and supplemental materials from, the lectures French philosopher Gilles Deleuze gave during his career at the University of Paris 8.

In the “Anti-Oedipus and Other Reflections” seminar, Deleuze reflects on his well-known book, Anti-Oedipus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia (co-authored with Félix Guattari, 1972; English translation 1977), and other concepts he had been developing up to and at that time.

This seminar consists of 2 lectures given in late May and early June of 1980. Each lecture has been published as an individual dataset consisting of mp3 audio files of the recorded lecture, including an aggregate mp3 of the entire lecture, and a French transcription of the recordings available as both pdf and plain text files.
