Immanence - Deleuze and Philosophy

Miguel de Beistegui


Identifies immanence as the original impetus and the driving force behind Deleuze’s philosophy

In 5 chapters dealing with the status of thought itself, ontology, logic, ethics and aesthetics, de Beistegui reveals how immanence is realised in each of these classical domains of philosophy. Ultimately, he argues, immanence is an infinite task, and transcendence the opposition with which philosophy will always need to reckon.

About the Author

Miguel de Beistegui is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick. He is the author of Truth and Genesis: Philosophy as Differential Ontology (Indiana University Press, 2004) and The New Heidegger (Continuum, 2005).


As a kind of sequel to his monumental Truth and Genesis, Miguel de Beistegui's Immanence - Deleuze and Philosophy lays out the most comprehensive investigation of the 'event' in Deleuze's thought. He expertly shows how Deleuze's ontology of becoming complements and surpasses Heidegger's ontology of being. This book confirms what many people were already thinking - de Beistegui is one of the most original philosophical voices of the 21st century.
