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.
