About this book

Examining the revival of Bergsonism for phenomenology, leading scholars of both areas inaugurate a dialogue long overdue. By assessing phenomenology's readings of Bergson and Bergsonian challenges to phenomenological methods, the essays in this volume explore anew the issues of central concern in contemporary continental philosophy.

Reviews

'Michael Kelly has put together an exceptionally strong collection of essays that seeks a dialogue between Bergson and phenomenology and that features work by both leading continental philosophers and phenomenologists and aspiring young scholars. Such a collection of essays is long overdue. The essays, which cover topics ranging from time, consciousness, and affect to life, evolution, and ethics, are rich and varied. The collection represents a most welcome contribution to the emerging new literature on Bergson and succeeds in showing that Bergson is refreshingly contemporary. Highly recommended. ' - Keith Ansell-Pearson, Professor of Philosophy, University of Warwick

'The virtue of Michael R. Kelly's volume is not only to have reconstructed debates between Bergson and classical phenomenologists but, more importantly, to propose a Bergsonian contribution to such central phenomenological topics as subjectivity, time, embodiment, nothingness, life, and freedom.' - Alexandre Lefebvre, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

'...the publication of this book is so welcome...' -Akos Krassoy, Tijdschrift voor Filosofie
