Theory and Philosophy Reading Group: Deleuze and Guattari’s Thousand Plateaus

So the reading group is back! And we decided we were feeling masochistic, so we’ve decided to start with Deleuze and Guattari’s Thousand Plateaus.

Theory and Philosophy Reading Group: Deleuze & Guattari’s A Thousand Plateaus
Friday August 20th, 2021 – 7pm
Old Capitol Books, Downtown Monterey

A Thousand Plateaus continues the work Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari began in Anti-Oedipus and has now become established as one of the classic studies of the development of critical theory in the late twentieth century. It occupies an important place at the center of the debate reassessing the works of Freud and Marx, advancing an approach that is neither Freudian nor Marxist but which learns from both to find an entirely new and radical path. It presents an attempt to pioneer a variety of social and psychological analyses free of the philosophical encumbrances criticized by postmodern writers. A Thousand Plateaus is an essential text for feminists, literary theorists, social scientists, philosophers, and others interested in the problems of contemporary Western culture.”
