Deleuze, alluding to Kant and Schelling, at times refers to his
philosophy as a transcendental empiricism. In Kant's transcendental
idealism, experience only makes sense when organized by intellectual
categories (such as space, time, and causality). Taking such
intellectual concepts out of the context of experience, according to
Kant, spawns seductive but senseless metaphysical beliefs. (For
example, extending the concept of causality beyond actual experience
results in unverifiable speculation about a first cause.) Deleuze
inverts the Kantian arrangement: experience exceeds our concepts by
presenting novelty, and this raw experience of difference actualizes
an idea, unfettered by our prior categories, forcing us to invent new
ways of thinking
