Deleuze, Kant, and the Theory of Immanent Ideas

(p.43) Chapter 3 Deleuze, Kant, and the Theory of Immanent Ideas
Deleuze and Philosophy

Daniel W. Smith

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the relation between Gilles Deleuze's theory of Ideas and the theme of immanence, particularly with regard to the theory of Ideas found in Immanuel Kant's three critiques. It argues that if the theory of Ideas can be seen as the thread that unites Kant's critical project, Deleuze's own differential and immanent theory of Ideas can similarly be seen as the ‘rhizome’ that gathers together the diverse strands of Deleuze's own philosophical project. It highlights the similarities between Deleuze's Difference and Repetition and Anti-Oedipus with Kant's Critique of Pure Reason and Critique of Practical Reason.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, theory of Ideas, immanence, Immanuel Kant, immanent theory, Difference and Repetition, Anti-Oedipus, Critique of Pure Reason, Critique of Practical Reason
