Since its publication in , Difference and Repetition , an exposition of the critique of identity, has come to be considered a contemporary classic in philosophy and one of Gilles Deleuze's most important works.
The text follows the development of two central concepts, those of pure difference and complex repetition. It shows how the two concepts are related, difference implying divergence and decentring, repetition being associated with displacement and disguising.
About Difference and Repetition
The work moves deftly between Hegel, Kierkegaard, Freud, Althusser and Nietzsche to establish a fundamental critique of Western metaphysics, and has been a central text in initiating the shift in French thought - away from Hegel and Marx, towards Nietzsche and Freud.

Deleuze explicitly rejects metaphorisation. We mean what we say.
The world is not, then, like a rhizome; it is a rhizome or it creates a rhizome. The authors see their philosophy as confirmed by analogies from the realm of nature.
Immanenz im Internet und auf Video. Berlin For the rhizome in the context of contemporary art cf. Thomas Wulffen: Der gerissene Faden. Nichtlineare Techniken in der Kunst. In: Kunstforum Vol. Guattari and Deleuze therefore reject a direct translation of their philosophy to other levels of reality. Sow nothing, take offshoots instead. Be neither one nor multiple, be multiplicities. Draw lines and never a full stop. Speed makes a line out of a full stop. Be fast, even at a standstill. Line of happiness, hip line.

They see the rhizome as an anarchistic carrier of expression behind which lies the principle of a general rejection of normativity. In combination with this anti-normative basic outlook Guattari and Deleuze call for the network always to be held open. The combination of interior and the mesh of branches, the seemingly dematerialised space between and the material of the wood constitutes for the viewer a hinge by means of which observation and interpretation are always kept on the move. Das Netzwerk von Deleuze, p.
In Gilles Deleuze: Unterhandlungen. Frankfurt a. Quite the opposite. They require an open-minded reception and interpretation. While looking at them the viewer involuntarily changes his location and with it his perspective, leading to a constant change in perception of overlapping meshes of branch separated from each other by an in-between interior. The paradigm of multiperspectivity  is subjected to constant motion. The works do not assume a fixed shape but are subject to instability and variability. They do not permit a clearly defined access and cannot be opened up directly.
In addition, contrasting the theory of Humberto R. Maturana and Francisco J. If, however, we do not presuppose the existence of a world that is independent of us who observe it, we appear to concede that everything is relative and anything is possible because no laws and principles exist. For Bergmeier there can be no question of any kind of objectivity because everything is subject to change and to subjective selection. Finally, subjective, multiperspectivic selection is also expressed in the development of the series of works.
While, for example, Oil on Wood No. Meanwhile, No. Epistemological theories of art history or philosophical considerations provide the impetus, as do subjective, individual and everyday factors. Varela: Der Baum der Erkenntnis. Die biologischen Wurzeln des menschlichen Erkennens. Berne , p. This principle is not to be seen necessarily as a quantity or specific amount.
Gilles Deleuze: Key Concepts
All they can perceive is a specific, multiple ensemble [ This plan of a multiplicity that is accessible to being perceived and shaped is that of consistency, the pattern of possible multidimensional connections that are not realised but merely decipherable in their possibility. Rhizom, p. In his words representation repeats the present in an unacceptable way. Things are said to be valued solely in terms of how close to or remote from a principle or archetype they are rather than judging them by whether they have the capacity to leave their regular place and jump between borders.
The modern world is the world of illusions [simulacres].
