Please clarify: What does Deleuze mean by "difference" & "repetition"?

Reply Wed 30 May, 2012 08:34 am
Hello, I'm interested in Gilles Deleuze's ideas on difference & repetition, but I haven't been able to find clear, simple definitions. Can somebody already familiar with his work please clarify Deleuze's use of these terms &/or recommend secondary material explaining / summarising the area?

According to various authors referring to Deleuze, some of his work is particularly relevant to artistic creativity. If you can, please also mention which specific works / passages of works of Deleuze have such relevance. Recommended secondary readings would also be appreciated, (especially those freely available on the web).

I suspect his distinction pertained to his interpretation (in his dissertation, 1968) of Nietzsche's concept of the Eternal Return.
