Overview

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.

-Packed with insights into historical periods, art, and philosophy. . . . a particular strength of the book is the depth of its exploration of philosophical concepts--both what they are and what they presuppose. A pleasure to read, this is a rigorous structural reflection of the philosophical concept and a genuine contribution to philosophy. Highly recommended. -R. E. Palmer -Humanities
