The Difference Immanence Makes

(p.41) 2 Deleuze
Deleuze and the Naming of God

Daniel Colucciello Barber

Edinburgh University Press

Chapter 2 presents a sustained, constructive exegesis of Deleuze’s work as a whole. This presentation makes available an account of immanence that is neither negatively-defined nor indeterminate. Furthermore, it demonstrates that Deleuzian immanence is not subject to the limits inherent in Heidegger (an ambiguous account of time) and Derrida (the absence of a link between difference and production of the new). The chapter proceeds to show how immanence, due to its intrinsically differential character, opens the possibility of re-expressing, or of constructing, the nature of being. This immanent power of re-expression is articulated through concepts of intensity, the virtual, and the crystal. The chapter concludes with Deleuze’s theory of time, which enables the creation of a future that simultaneously expels the present configuration of being.
