Description

Deleuze identifies three pivotal concepts--duration, memory, and lan vital--that are found throughout Bergson's writings.

In this analysis of one major philosopher by another, Gilles Deleuze identifies three pivotal concepts--duration, memory, and lan vital--that are found throughout Bergson's writings and shows the relevance of Bergson's work to contemporary philosophical debates. Deleuze interprets and integrates these themes into a single philosophical program, arguing that Bergson's philosophical intentions are methodological. They are more than a polemic against the limitations of science and common sense, particularly in Bergson's elaboration of the explanatory powers of the notion of duration--thinking in terms of time rather than space.Bergsonism is also important to an understanding of Deleuze's own work, influenced as it is by Bergson.
