This chapter examines Gilles Deleuze's engagement with the mathematical philosophy of Albert Lautman. It suggests that mathematical work which was drawn upon and played a significant role in Deleuze's philosophical project is that of Lautman, and explains that the speculative logic which Deleuze constructs as a part of his project of constructing a philosophy of difference is dialectical in the Lautmanian sense. The chapter provides an account of Lautmanian dialectic and evaluates how it operates in Lautman's work.
