Writing at the Edge of Civilization

by elnath on Aug 7, 2008

This book is probably the most important philosophical treatise of the 20th C. Why? It is a total deconstruction of the sacred icons of Western Civilization, including but not limited to: heirarchies of any kind (pyramids); pyschoanalysis (in all its forms); the State and its War making Machine; linguistics and semiotics; signs and signifiers; and, finally, bodies without organs(?!). The chapters can be read in any order the reader prefers. But, be prepared to have your belief system seriously challenged, dismantled, muttering in disbelief as you work through the radical and outrageously otherness of this work. Just to read it is to be changed. NOt for the squeamish reader and definitely not for those seeking instant gratification. A Thousand Plateaus is a monumental testament to what was, what is, and what is to come. You'll have to peak inside and read one essay and then be utterly changed. Forever. Rating: X (not for the juvenile unenlightened reader).
