Thinking in Time
An Introduction to Henri BergsonBook - 2006
From the publisher's description: "Guerlac's straightforward philosophical expositions of two Bergson texts, Time and Free Will (1888) and Matter and Memory (1896), focus on the notions of duration and memory--concepts that are central to the philosopher's work. Thinking in Time makes plain that it is well worth learning how to read Bergson effectively: his era and our own share important concerns. Bergson's insistence on the opposition between the automatic and the voluntary and his engagement with the notions of 'the living,' affect, and embodiment are especially germane to discussions of electronic culture."
