‘A rare and remarkable book.' Times Literary Supplement

Gilles Deleuze (1925-1995) was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII. He is a key figure in poststructuralism, and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century.

Félix Guattari (1930-1992) was a psychoanalyst at the la Borde Clinic, as well as being a major social theorist and radical activist.

A Thousand Plateaus is part of Deleuze and Guattari's landmark philosophical project, Capitalism and Schizophrenia - a project that still sets the terms of contemporary philosophical debate. A Thousand Plateaus provides a compelling analysis of social phenomena and offers fresh alternatives for thinking about philosophy and culture. Its radical perspective provides a toolbox for ‘nomadic thought' and has had a galvanizing influence on today's anti-capitalist movement.

Woe. A thousand plateaus by Deleuze and Guatteri. Mmmmm maybe several thousand scantily related sentences published as a whole. A rhizomatic layering where what comes first last or middle really doesnt matter. Spinuzzi's blog makes some sense of it Read full review
