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 tricky bond among French philosophers Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze. It explores the main 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 inspiration and event that contrasts with the dominant account of the phenomenological culture. Valentine Moulard-Leonard argues that Bergson and Deleuze percentage a singular belief of the transcendental—which they name the Virtual—that marks a brand new period in considering, within which what's finally at stake is a brand new imaginative and prescient of time, event, and materiality. The digital offers an crucial substitute to the totalizing structures spawned via the conventional transcendent photo of thought—be they structures of idealism, clinical positivism, nationalism, racism, sexism, or dogmatism.

“The courting 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 event brings to the fore the elemental ontological and epistemological dimensions in their thought.” — Ronald Bogue, writer of Deleuze’s Wake: Tributes and Tributaries
