Deleuze Transcendental Empiricism as Exercise of Thought: Hume’s Case


This paper aims to clarify the program of Deleuze’s work on Hume’s philosophy. Also, I plan to make clear the operational meaning of Deleuze’s own hallmark regarding his approaches to philosophy. I start to follow Deleuze’s plot by engendering three functions of his interpretation of Hume’s Treatise that will be the area of three thematic chapters. The first tries to sort the polemical function of empiricism that is launched through Deleuze’s Hume; the second attempts to figure the domain of subjectivity as the inventive function of the book; the third searches the creative function by describing the role of the institutional theory.

Keywords: empiricism, human nature, subjectivity, institutional theory, Deleuze, Hume.
