Beginning With Difference

Beginning With Difference

Heidegger, Derrida, and the Time of Thought

(p.25) 1 Beginning With Difference
Deleuze and the Naming of God

Daniel Colucciello Barber

Edinburgh University Press

Chapter 1 contextualises Deleuze’s development of immanence. It begins with an account of how Heidegger makes the sameness of thought and being pivot around the concept of difference. While Heidegger thus contributes a powerful insight, he is unable to expand further on this insight due to his inexorable ambiguity regarding the question of time. The chapter then turns to Derrida’s account of “différance,” which complicates and seeks to resolve this Heideggerean ambiguity concerning the relation between difference and time. Derrida makes many advances, but nonetheless encounters new difficulties, which revolve around the lack of any determinate link between the thought of difference and the production of the new in virtue of difference. It is within this set of problems that Deleuze’s thought emerges.

Keywords:   Jacques Derrida, différance, difference, Martin Heidegger, temporality, unthought
