Overview

Henri Bergson, central to European philosophy at the beginning of the C20th, is returning to that position at the beginning of the C21st. Bergson's legacy reaches across the disciplines of philosophy, humanities and the arts, and has especial relevance for recent film and video studies (in the area of time, change and difference). This collection includes an original essay by Gilles Deleuze, translated into English for the first time. Hugely impressive international cast including not only Deleuze, but also Worms, Gunter, Ansell Pearson and Timothy S. Murphy. The first in the acclaimed Angelaki Humanities series.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Scholars of philosophy from Europe, the US, and Korea reflect and describe the renewed interest in the work of Henri Bergson, arguing that at the beginning of the 20th century he reset the agenda of philosophy and its relationship with science, art, and life itself. Their intention is to make his thinking accessible to non-specialist teachers and students in a number of disciplines. Distributed in the US by Palgrave. Annotation c.
