The claim advanced in this paper is that the radicalisation of Kant’s project of the critique of metaphysics can be said to culminate in the fusion of two, traditionally opposed, terms - immanence and sublimity. Starting with a discussion of Kant's 'Analytic of the Sublime', the paper pursues its main claim through the reading of key texts in the thought of Nietzsche, Heidegger and Deleuze/Guattari. It attempts to clarify the dfferent senses of the'immanent sublime' it suggests is found in the texts of these different thinkers and argues that the more naturalistically inclined and orientated versions are the most rigorous.
