Immanence - Deleuze and Philosophy

Miguel de Beistegui

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter argues that there is a dimension of ontology that exceeds the limits of the ontogenetic problematic. Difference and Repetition sets the transcendental field as the realm of Ideas. Immanence is transcendence itself that is transcendent to the immanence within which it unfolds. Gilles Deleuze's use of the concept of expression in A Thousand Plateaus is entirely consistent with that of Expressionism, and aims to define the same process. It then describes the stratification, and highlights the fact that Deleuze associates it with a process of transcendence. In addition to the plane of organisation and development, and as the plane from which it grows, Deleuze is concerned to draw an altogether different plane, namely, the plane of consistency, or immanence. It is noted that philosophy is more akin to artistic creation.

Keywords:   ontology, Difference and Repetition, Ideas, immanence, Gilles Deleuze, transcendence, plane of consistency, plane of organisation, expression, artistic creation
