Derrida, Margins, p. 11. 17. , p. 7; my emphasis. 1 Specifically, it arises from his discussion of the Spinozian triad, which includes: substance, or God, the oneness of being; attributes, or forms; and modes, or individuals. These terms, which provide the architecture of reality, are immanently related insofar as they can be thought neither separately nor hierarchically.

An initial response to the impulse driving immanence emerges in Heidegger’s desire to think the sameness of thought and being. If thought and being are ‘the Same’, then neither fully transcends the other. An immanent relation of thought and being is thus put in place. 2. This immanent relation of thought and being pivots on difference. Immanence is not identity, it is rather the affirmation of difference. The connection of immanence to difference as it is found in Heidegger, and the exploration of the temporality of this connection as it is found in Derrida, express problematic potentialities for the differential immanence that Deleuze articulates.
