Deleuze and the Naming of God

Chapter 6 uses the concept of immanent belief as a means of further articulating the concept of metaphilosophy. Immanent belief is belief that takes as its object not another world, nor a transformed world, but solely this world as it is. Transcendent determinations of thought’s relation to the world are precluded through the installation of an immanent circuit between thought and the world that affects it. This is an open circuit: the world is too much for thought as it is presently configured, but precisely for this reason the world forces thought to encounter what is unthought in immanence. The chapter shows how the problematisation of relations constituting the present enables the generation of new relations. These new relations – by way of art, philosophy, and fabulation – produce real beings of thought that break with the present.
