This is an older post by Terence Blake, and it is still worth noting. I especially took interst in the last paragraph:
Deleuze did a lot of harm with his definition of philosophy as “creation of concepts” and his attitude of ignoring objections. Deleuze was in fact a master of argumentation but did not sufficiently integrate it into his system of thought, thus leaving an opening for multiple inane monologues juxtaposed as if a discussion were taking place. Deleuze’s aim was to break with the dichotomous dialogue between two egos who had nothing to say to each other but who were fighting for symbolic dominance.
