This chapter examines the connections between the philosophies of Martin Heidegger and Gilles Deleuze. It suggests that Deleuze's references to Heidegger in his works reveal interesting points of proximity and also significant lines of divergence between the two philosophers. The chapter explains that while Deleuze commended Heidegger for his role in the transformation of the old image of thought and for having assigned to difference the prominent philosophical role which distinguishes it from the negative, he also criticised Heidegger for having rendered philosophy indistinguishable from its own history.
