    A Thousand Plateaus is a vastly underrated ontology. This book is clever. A productive ontology which integrates evolution into the fabric of philosophy. We are always becoming. And by “we” I mean I or at least the closed set of possibilities I construct as “I”. Unfortunately, this work, as with many French “Theorists” of the period (like Foucault), have been misappropriated by lesser minds (such as the translator’s own “work”) – perhaps “misappropriated” is too Platonic, maybe over applied to allow shallow scholars to esoterically argue reality into cynical relativism obviating all knowledge and discourse. “A Thousand Plateaus” is tongue and cheek – about play as much as seriousness. The Hegelian historical dialectic used against itself. Abstract structures which are neither transcendent nor concrete. Its only a puzzled narrative of what there may be but most importantly what there could be.

    A note on Deleuze’s “association” with Ayn Rand “followers”; there is nothing in any legitimate scholarship which even suggests such a correlation. His works are productive analyses of the history of philosophy from which he contextualizes his own understanding of the human condition – fully couched in the discourse of philosophy (though not necessarily “traditional”), and his notions of democracy does not lie within the purview of “Objectivist” ideology (all politics are problematic). Unfortunately for conservative ideology, Ayn Rand is “cheap” philosophy (though miles better than contemporary ideologues) written to provide a context from which she could construct her misogynist heroes. Pardon the ad hominem fallacy. Her philosophy is like her fiction – “typing” as Truman Capote so contemptuously stated.

    “A Thousand Plateaus” is one of those great, sprawling books that is alive and squirming with thousands of ideas like Toynbee’s “Study of History,” let’s say, or Peter Sloterdijk’s “Spheres.” It is, furthermore, an intimidating book to read for the newcomer to Deleuze, since it contains the fully worked out cosmology and metaphysics that he had been slowly and patiently building over the years, first by himself, then with Guattari. You can read it without prerequisites, as I did on my first pass, but it will bewilder you if you have no acquaintance with Deleuze’s “Difference and Repetition” and his and Guattari’s earlier “Anti-Oedipus.”

    What a splendidly funny masterpiece. What most people or readers miss, is that the fictitious Prof. Challenger ( A Sir conan doyle character) supposedly created all these new concepts in 1000 plateau. What does this signify or import when an fictitious author is given credit for all their ideas? Is Deleuze and Guattari just the amanuensis for this Prof. Challenger? I see most people fail to even see this key point on go on discussing things like rhizomes, dimensional schizo-stratification with all seriousness…when the book is really a fun jest-like book….it is post-modern in the sense it leaps from one hyper-dimension of a ‘real author’ to a ‘fake author’ to a ‘dead author’ mixing audaciously the levels of reality with fiction. I think, Prof. Challenger was introduced in chapter 3, so begin there and look for clues…you will see he was one that built the machine which made the Earth scream the truth.
