This chapter aims to present the key concepts and problems which animate Gilles Deleuze's relationship with Immanuel Kant in such a way that their broader impact on Deleuze's philosophy is made visible and explicitly indicated. It explains that a commitment to philosophy as a form of critique, in the specific sense Kant gave this term, is a recurring motif in Deleuze's work, from his earliest monograph on David Hume in 1953 to his late collection of essays entitled Critique et Clinique. The chapter argues that in most cases, Deleuze's Kantianism is felt rather than stated, and that it is suggested by a turn of phrase or piece of terminology rather than an explicit reference.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Immanuel Kant, philosophy, David Hume, Critique et Clinique, Kantianism
