Deleuze and Guattari's A Thousand Plateaus : A Critical Introduction and Guide Paperback

Description

Offera a guide to Deleuze and Guattari's masterwork, A Thousand Plateaus.

The sheer volume and complexity of Deleuze and Guattari's A Thousand Plateaus can be daunting.

What is a rhizome? What is a war machine? What is a body without organs? Brent Adkins demonstrates that all the questions raised by A Thousand Plateaus are in service to Deleuze and Guattari's radical reconstruction of the methods and aims of philosophy itself.

To achieve this, Adkins demonstrates that the crucial term for understanding A Thousand Plateaus is 'assemblage.' He links each plateau with a particular type of assemblage - social, political, linguistic - as he guides you through this difficult test.

It explains all the major terms found in A Thousand Plateaus in clear language; each chapter corresponds to a 'plateau' for ease of reference and provides a singular interpretation of the work in terms of assemblages and connecting that interpretation with traditional and contemporary debates within philosophy.
