Like no other, Gilles Deleuze insisted that a philosopher’s first task was to construct a plan of immanence. In contrast to religion, which is oriented towards transcendence, philosophy begins with an observation, with the opening of a problem that calls for reflection, that is, with the implicit prerequisite of immanence, which is immanent to itself. „Procédons sommairement : nous considérons un champ d’expérience pris comme monde réel non plus par rapport à un moi, mais par rapport à un simple „il y a“. Il y a, à tel moment, un monde calme et reposant. Surgit soudain un visage effrayé […].“ This draft of a sensual world populated by events which touch upon the subjective space of experience opens the chapter concerning concepts in Deleuze and Guattari’s Qu’est-ce que la philosophie ? Philosophical concepts relate to problems or inner conditions, and thus they relate to a background of latent presumptions or to an intuitive understanding of immanence.
