Reviews

Philosophy, according to the authors, is the only study that is concerned with the creation of concepts, which distinguishes it from science, logic, and art. To support this thesis, the authors discuss the nature of these disciplines and the thought of a wide spectrum of philosophers, from Plato to Foucault. Unfortunately, singular insights are buried in a text so dense with metaphor and figurative language (e.g., ``the plane of immanence,'' ``conceptual personae'') that it is impossible to decide whether they have argued their case successfully or even whether they have made their thesis fully intelligible. For academic libraries collecting these authors and continental philosophy.-Leon H. Brody, U.S. Office of Personnel Mgt. Lib., Washington, D.C.

"A very great book ... one of the rare ones which compel us to se things differently ... it will very soon become a classic." - Didier Eribon, Le nouvel observateur
