Henry Somers-Hall

Deleuze’s Difference and Repetition.
An Edinburgh Philosophical Guide



Intro sect. 4
How to Use this Guide

Brief summary:

Somers-Hall’s guide is best read alongside Deleuze’s Difference and Repetition, however it could also be read alone. Somers-Hall also provides many helpful supplements in the book as well.




Although this guide can be read alone, it would be most productive to read it alongside Difference and Repetition.

In cases where there are multiple English editions, Somers-Hall will cite both, and this includes Difference and Repetition. He also will translate to English when the original text is lacking an English translation. At the end of the book, there are “aids” for studying Deleuze, a further reading section, a glossary, and a section that offers advice for writing about Deleuze. (6)
