Product Description

Review

This is a long-overdue, and skillful, translation of one of Deleuzes most important and original works...It occupies an important place in Deleuzes oeuvre as the first text, following a series of historical commentaries, in which he philosophizes on his own behalf. It occupies an equally important place in the evolution of French philosophy in the 20th century, as it articulates a profound critique of the philosophy of representation while constructing a metaphysics of difference freed from subordination to a logic of identity. While charting the development through the history of philosophy of the concepts of ' pure difference and ' complex repetition, Deleuze proposes a new image of thought, which readers familiar with his later works will recognize. A difficult and challenging text that has done as much as any to initiate the philosophy of difference that characterizes much recent French thought, this book is one of the classics of recent European philosophy. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grounding a Philosophy of Difference 31 Jan 2004
Format:Paperback
This is (arguably) the most important work written by Deleuze for a reason that seems to me is often obscured or merely forgotten: it is (maybe) the only work that seeks to lay the foundation for a systematic treatment of ‘difference’ and by ex-tension (or in-tension) ‘repetition’. It does not seek to derive ‘difference’ and ‘repetition’ (simply) from identity and the in-dividual. It seeks to think of ‘difference’ and ‘repetition’ in themselves. And this is what is important here: thinking (and not some petty play of figures and words in the frontal attacks or soul mating with particular thinkers) in its rhizomatic form rather than its arborescent one.
What is therefore central in this work is ‘idea’, and (therefore) ‘perception’. In simple terms, Deleuze has managed to provide some foundational links with the philosophies of mind, language and time. He has given to the philosophy of difference a central and unifying role (across such and other disciplines) to play.
In this sense ‘difference’ and ‘repetition’ are not only linked between them (in the sense that one leads to the other), but also linked with other important notions usually discussed in other disciplines. Let me give some brief indications.
Chapter 1 is concerned with ‘difference’, not as mere ‘diversity’, ‘otherness’ or ‘negation’, bur rather as ‘general’ or ‘specific’ where the latter is the moment when difference is reconciled with the concept in general. In this manner, Deleuze sees ‘difference’ as a concept of reflection in relation to ‘representation’ that involves ‘movement’.
