The Continental Philosophy Reading Group: A Thousand Plateaus

26th October 2017, 17:00, 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 26 October, 16 November and 7 December at 5pm, 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.

All welcome - please contact Luke Sunderland for further information.
