Explores the continuities and discontinuities within the paintings of Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze.

Bergson-Deleuze Encounters sheds gentle at the complicated bond among French philosophers Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze. It explores the key diffraction among the 2 thinkers, conveys a feeling of the irreducible originality of Deleuze’s inspiration, 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 proportion a unique notion of the transcendental—which they name the Virtual—that marks a brand new period in pondering, within which what's finally at stake is a brand new imaginative and prescient of time, event, and materiality. The digital presents an critical substitute to the totalizing structures spawned via the conventional transcendent snapshot 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 suggestion. Her concentrate on them as advocates of a post-Kantian philosophy of transcendental adventure brings to the fore the basic ontological and epistemological dimensions in their thought.” — Ronald Bogue, writer of Deleuze’s Wake: Tributes and Tributaries
