This review is from: Difference and Repetition (Continuum Impacts) (Continuum Impacts) (Paperback)
Gilles Deleuze one of the key figures in poststructuralism, and one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. The book 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 recognise. 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.
