This is understandable given the emphasis Deleuze himself places on Peirce’s typology of firstness, secondness, and thirdness in his Cinema books, as well as the importance of a theory of signs in his Proust and Signs. 1 The importance of passive synthesis as set forth in the second chapter of Difference and Repetition has been routinely discussed. What is of particular significance for our purposes is that with the notion of passive synthesis, Deleuze is able to argue for a process whereby an identity comes to be individuated in a way that does not presuppose an identity that predetermines the process—it presupposes, instead, an actual infinite or indeterminate chaos.

The problem with Kant’s move, Deleuze argues, is that this “pure thought,” the noumena, to the extent that it “remains undetermined—or is not determined as differential,” continues to remain tied to the framework of external conditioning and representation in that the noumena is external to and conditions the possibility of the regressive series of representations. In other words, as with his critique of Aristotle, who subjects specific difference to “the identity of an undetermined concept (genus)” (Deleuze 1994, 32), so too does Kant subject the differences between the representations of the regressive series to the identity of the undetermined noumena.
