The Continental Philosophy Reading Group: A Thousand Plateaus

16th November 2017, 13:00, TBC

The Continental Philosophy Reading Group will this year focus on Deleuze and Guattari's A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia. Meetings will be held on 16 November at 1pm, room tbc.

A Thousand Plateaus is important to quite a lot of interesting philosophy of the moment, especially in the fields of ecologies, post-humanism, assemblage theory and new ontologies. A Thousand Plateaus engages with literary texts, psychoanalysis, semiotics and linguistics in interesting ways, and develops the concepts of the body without organs, deterritorialization and strata. Written as an exercise in non-linear, nomadic thought, it should make excellent reading group material.
