Deleuze and the Naming of God

Chapter 3 addresses the rivalry between Deleuzian immanence and Christian theology’s analogy of being (primarily as it appears in its two preeminent, contemporary exponents, Hart and Milbank). The latter claim that immanence cannot provide any exteriority to what is given, and that only analogy enables a politics of transformation. The chapter shows that, for analogy, difference is an interval or degree of accord, whereas for Deleuze difference is an interstitial potency by which accords may be produced. Consequently, while analogy understands difference in itself as the enemy of accord, Deleuze envisions it as the capacity to create new accords. It is then argued that immanence departs from analogy in virtue of immanence’s conception of a temporal passage from disaffection with present accords to the making of unthought relations or of an essentially different future.
