This chapter reports the consequences of an extension of immanence for the classical domains of logic. It specifically illustrates the extent to which Gilles Deleuze's account of sense relates to, and differs from, that of logical empiricism and Edmund Husserl's transcendental logic. The ‘logic of sense’ would quite explicitly conflict the imperatives of logical positivism. Husserl's Formal and Transcendental Logic clearly show the aim and movement of Husserl's thought with respect to the question of logic. It is apparent that the Stoics depict a radical distinction between two planes of being: the real or profound being, force (dunamis); and the plane of effects, which take place on the surface of being, and constitute an endless multiplicity of incorporeal beings (attributes). The distance between Lewis Carroll and Antonin Artaud is the distance separating a language emitted at the surface and a language carved into the depth of bodies.
