Terms/Theory/Deleuze/Guattari/Bricmont/Sokal: (G. Deleuze, F. Guattari, Qu' est-ce que la philosophie?, Paris 1991 - German: Was ist Philosophie, Frankfurt/M. 1996: page numbers here from the German edition): in the work, the two use a plethora of scientific terms that have been taken out of context, without any perceptible logic. Deleuze and Guattari are certainly free to use these terms in a different way: science does not have a monopoly on the use of words such as "chaos","limit value/limit" or "energy".
