This chapter takes up the theme of problematic Ideas as it is laid out in Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason and Critique of the Power of Judgment. It explores the way in which Ideas count as problems ‘without solution’, and how they can animate our cognitive faculties to transcend their boundaries and elude determining judgements. In this context, Kant’s model of the experience of the sublime will play an important role. The chapter also examines how Deleuze develops Kant’s notion of Ideas into his own theory of Ideas, and analyzes the structure, internal operations, and the movement of actualisation of Deleuzian Ideas. In the elaboration of his ‘dialectics of Ideas’ Deleuze is inspired by the philosopher and mathematician Albert Lautman.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, problematic Ideas, Kant, Critique of Pure Reason, Critique of Power Judgment, sublime, Albert Lautman
