Transcendental Empiricism? Deleuze's Reading of Hume

Transcendental Empiricism? Deleuze's Reading of Hume

(p.95) Transcendental Empiricism? Deleuze's Reading of Hume
Impressions of Hume

Martin Bell

Oxford University Press

This chapter is about how Deleuze read Hume and how that reading contributed to his idea of a transcendental empiricism. In particular it discusses, first, Deleuze's engagement with Hume's empiricism, which he understands to be founded on a thesis of the externality of relations; and, second, what Deleuze calls the problem of subjectivity, which is what he takes Hume's account of human nature to concern. The chapter provides some support for Deleuze's innovative readings and concludes with remarks on a contrast between Deleuze's and Kant's transcendental philosophies, tracing a source for the contrast in Deleuze's and Kant's responses to Hume.

Keywords:   relations, subjectivity, empiricism, transcendental empiricism, transcendental philosophy
