Example text

Deleuze, DR, 15) In the case of Freudian repression, “that which repeats does so only by dint of not ‘comprehending,’ not remembering, not knowing or not being conscious” (Deleuze, DR, 16). ” In his critique of Freud, Deleuze rejects the presupposition of an originary “hidden” meaning which, according to Freud, gives rise to the repetitive enactments. For Deleuze’s there is no originary term; the masks Freud’s patients put on as they conceal their “real” selves are, Deleuze argues, as real as what is said to lie “beyond” them.

The task of radical modern philosophers is, then, to think difference and repetition in affirmative terms. In Deleuze’s philosophical project, repetition becomes the mechanism which releases and authenticates difference; it allows for non-mediated difference which cannot be subsumed under the category of the Same. As Michel Foucault observes in his review of Difference and Repetition and The Logic of Sense, Deleuze’s philosophy successfully resists mastering difference: What if [thought] conceived of difference differentially, instead of searching out the common elements underlying difference?

This type of (apparently redundant) repetition seems indeed a marker of Stein’s style which insists on jarring juxtapositions; for it is not only the unorthodox use of punctuation that makes the Stein sentence so difficult to follow, but also the lack of transition between elements one would not expect to be coupled. The repetitions of “that that” and “like, like” could easily be avoided (we expect writers to avoid them, and they usually do) by substituting a synonym or an equivalent phrase for one of the repeated elements.
