Bergson-Deleuze Encounters: Transcendental Experience and by Valentine Moulard-Leonard

By Valentine Moulard-Leonard

Explores the continuities and discontinuities within the paintings of Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze.

Bergson-Deleuze Encounters sheds gentle at the complex bond among French philosophers Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze. It explores the most important diffraction among the 2 thinkers, conveys a feeling of the irreducible originality of Deleuze’s suggestion, and gives a close account of Bergson’s “Copernican Revolution.” In so doing, it provides an evidence of proposal and event that contrasts with the dominant account of the phenomenological culture. Valentine Moulard-Leonard argues that Bergson and Deleuze percentage a unique notion of the transcendental—which they name the Virtual—that marks a brand new period in considering, within which what's eventually at stake is a brand new imaginative and prescient of time, event, and materiality. The digital offers an integral substitute to the totalizing platforms spawned via the conventional transcendent snapshot of thought—be they platforms of idealism, clinical positivism, nationalism, racism, sexism, or dogmatism.

“The dating among Bergson’s and Deleuze’s works has but to be explored absolutely, and the writer makes a robust case for a basic continuity of their inspiration. Her specialise in them as advocates of a post-Kantian philosophy of transcendental adventure brings to the fore the elemental ontological and epistemological dimensions in their thought.” — Ronald Bogue, writer of Deleuze’s Wake: Tributes and Tributaries
