A Fourth Repetition

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines Gilles Deleuze's writings on cinema and his concept of repetition. It explains that the hypothesis that guides the movement of passage in the text is that the cinematic apparatus is a temporalising assemblage. Thus, a repetition therefore would be ‘fourth’ if it engendered a purely cinematic time: one that arrives for the first time with the cinema, and therefore necessarily intervenes both in history and in the history of time.

Keywords: Gilles Deleuze; cinema; repetition; cinematic apparatus; temporalising assemblage; cinematic time; history of time
