A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia (French: Mille plateaux) is a 1980 philosophy book by the French philosopher Gilles Deleuze and the French psychoanalyst Félix Guattari. It is the second and final volume of Capitalism and Schizophrenia. While the first volume, Anti-Oedipus (1972), sought to "short-circuit" a developing "bureaucracy of analytic reason" in France (between Left political parties and psychoanalysis), the second was intended to be a "positive exercise" in nomadology. Brian Massumi's English translation was published in 1987, one year after the twelfth "plateau" was published separately as Nomadology: The War Machine (New York: Semiotext(e), 1986).
