ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT WORKS OF POST-STRUCTURALIST PHILOSOPHY.
First edition. 8vo (215 x 135mm). 645,  pp., illustrated chapter headings. Original printed wrappers (spine lightly toned, otherwise a near fine copy). Paris, Editions de Minuit, Collection Critique.
One of the most important works of post-structuralist philosophy, occupying an almost omnipresent status in contemporary social theory. It is comprised of a sprawling assemblage of fifteen separate "plateaus", a "rhizomatic" structure designed to subvert hierarchical dualisms of "arborescent" systems of thought that have dominated philosophy since Plato. The second and final volume of Deleuze & Guattari's Capitalism and Schizophrenia, A Thousand Plateaus is an exercise in the "nomad" thought called for in Anti-Oedipus, deploying a dizzying conceptual arsenal and gesturing towards a new materialism and a politicised, vitalist philosophy of difference.
