Lyotard explores the psychoanalytic concept of the libido , and the relation of libido to the human body and human behavior. He also discusses the work of authors such as the philosophers Karl Marx and Friedrich Nietzsche , Sigmund Freud , the founder of psychoanalysis , and the linguist Ferdinand de Saussure. He also discusses and criticizes the work of the psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan , Deleuze and Guattari , and the sociologist Jean Baudrillard ; he points out both similarities and differences between his work and that of Baudrillard.
