Time, according to Deleuze, “is constituted only in the originary synthesis which operates on the repetition of instants” (DR 70). The present moment is a contraction or subtraction of time from the passage of moments that occurs in the mind by means of a passive synthesis that Hume calls habit. Drawing on Bergson as well as Husserl, Deleuze demonstrates how this passive synthesis works: the imagination draws “something new from repetition,” it extracts difference from this experience of repetition (DR 76).
Dice throw (“there is only one throw of the dice” [CB 73]); and the identity of Being as One-All. This logic of identity consumes Deleuze: The Clamor of Being, despite the critique of identity in Difference and Repetition, which I will discuss in the next chapter. Badiou claims that Deleuze’s antidialectical method “rejects all recourse to mediations” (CB 32). This claim results in commentators strongly influenced by Badiou such as Peter Hallward saying that Deleuze lacks any theory of relations.
Solutions are mathematical, whereas philosophical problems are dialectical. Deleuze is less interested in the solutions that modern mathematics finds than the problems that it poses, and how it enables us to better think difference without a preexisting image. The reference to dx and to the development of differential calculus allows Deleuze to conclude that “Ideas are multiplicities: every idea is a multiplicity and variety” (DR 182). Deleuze refers to Riemann here, and asserts that multiplicity is based not on a combination of the one and the many, but “rather [on] an organization belonging to the many as such, which has no need whatsoever of unity in order to form a system” (DR 182).
