Repetition: Differential Monotony, Affects, Creation

Abstract

This article explores the creative value of the notion of ‘repetition’ in Michel Foucault’s texts from the 1960s and early 1970s. Re-enacting Gilles Deleuze’s philosophy, Foucault implicitly refers to the Freudian repetition mechanisms in order to distort and reverse them. Foucault’s repetition is de-psychologized, affectively de-individualizing, and temporally erratic, using the power of a senseless repetition to create new possibilities for the future.
