About the Author

Gilles Deleuze was Professor of Philosophy at the University of Paris VIII. He died in November 1995. Among his many works are The Logic of Sense, Difference and Repetition, and Nietzche and Philosophy, all published by Columbia University Press.

Félix Guattari, a practicing psychoanalyst in Paris until his death in 1992, collaborated with Deleuze on four books, including Anti-Oedipus and A Thousand Plateaus.

Reviews

A pivotal work.--Times Literary Supplement
Multiple beings, deterritorialized Earth, chaotic brains, artistic sensations: with these ideas, Deleuze and Guattari reach out to future "friends" of the concept, tired of worn-out philosophical gestures or conceptual moves, offering them a sense and a taste of what it means to try out new concepts and set things again in motion.--John Rajchman "ArtForum International "
A pleasure to read, this is a rigorous structural reflection of the philosophical concept and a genuine contribution to philosophy. Highly recommended.--Choice
[An] important, highly original challenging book....As a result, the success of Deleuze's argument that we are Leibnizan is, in turn, compelling evidence for Foucault's suggestion that our century is Deleuzian. Because the action indeed takes place inside, readers of this journal should not overlook this evidence.--Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism
