27. 3. Ibid. 4. , p. 39. 5. Heidegger delineates rather tersely the dynamic relation between the unthought, determined as difference, and the emergence of new possibilities that are immanent to the thought-being relation: ‘We speak of 38 Beginning With Difference the difference between being and beings. , p. 50). But this movement, from unthought difference into a renewal of the thought-being relation, presupposes a prior movement into unthought difference. One must first encounter the unthought, and in order to do this one must undo the presently given manner of relation between thought and being, which Heidegger rather famously termed ‘ontotheology’.

Instances of such investment are legion (and are often marked by some kind of relation to Hegelian developmentalism).

In order to see the force of this challenge, we can begin by noting that there will always be an initially given relation between thought and being. This given relation governs the coordinates of reality, the coordinates in which the possibilities of existence are imagined. The challenge brought by advocates of the transcendent, then, is as follows: if there is no appeal to the transcendent, then a radical break with the given coordinates of reality is impossible; a new way of thinking, when it remains immanent, will amount to nothing more than a scrambling of the 27 deleuze and the naming of god given, a rearrangement that plays with but ultimately accepts – and thus does not essentially transform – the coordinates of reality.
