Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
A Thousand Plateaus is an absolute necessity for any
serious reader of contemporary philosophy. Deleuze and
Guattari correctly predicted the intensification of the
stratification of "civilized society" by 1980; they also
presaged the World Wide Web and declared their deep
suspicions about any and all massive systems for networking
humankind before the web ever existed. Their anarchic call
for radical individual autonomy never sounded truer than now.
(A noteworthy additional book to seek from their giant
bibliography: Pierre Clastres' Society Against the State.)

This is a profound book. But do not buy this edition. I have had two seperate copies that have had the same fault with the binding, and amazon have confirmed that it is a recurring problem with this edition's manufacture. The edition looks lovely but is of terrible quality.

This is a book that challenges traditional philosophy stylistically and conceptually. The creative terminology applied by D & G fits their Nietzschean strand of philosophical thought nicely, even when it becomes difficult to follow at times. Subjects varying from linguistics to psychoanalysis are covered in a refreshingly non-linear order. Together with Anti-Oedipus, this book can inspire.

The five star rating refers only to the pure philosophical rhizomatic wizardry of this book, needless to say it's very close to a life changing experience. Although, I'd recommend to get acquainted with the schizo excursions of "Anti-oedipus" first.

The overall presentation of the 2013 Bloomsbury Revelations edition is great, the format is quite comfortable (it's noticeably bigger than the Continuum edition) and has nice cover design. But beware, there are way too many typos! It's very close to the threshold of unacceptability. It's quite a shame for Bloomsbury to publish such an exceptional book with so poor editorial job. This certainly won't stop me from completing it, but I won't be inclined to buy anything from the Bloomsbury Revelations series again.
