"A very great book ... one of the rare ones which compel us to se things differently ... it will very soon become a classic." - Didier Eribon, Le nouvel observateur --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
From the Back Cover
Deleuze and Guattari differentiate between philosophy, science, and the arts--seeing each as a means of confronting chaos--and challenge the common view that philosophy is an extension of logic. The authors also discuss the similarities and distinctions between creative and philosophical writing. Fresh anecdotes from the history of philosophy illuminate this book, along with engaging discussions of composers, painters, writers, and architects. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

Philosophy is associated with questioning, but questioning it's own practice is very rare. This attempt by Deleuze, to associate philosophy with the creation of concepts (a theme of creation inherited from Nietzsche, given an epistemological twist) is novel and fun; and every continental philosopher should read this book.
Don't read this book if you want to use philosophy, read it if you want to understand.
