The Relevance Of Bergson To Contemporary Philosophy ( A Zone Book) 'A 'return to Bergson' does not only mean a renewed admiration for a great philosopher, but a renewal or an extension of his project today, in relation to the transfor- mations of life and society, in parallel with the trans- formations of science. Bergson himself considered that he had made metaphysics a rigorous discipline, one capable of being continued along new paths which constantly appear in the world. To continue Bergson's project today, means for example to constitute a metaphysical image of thought corresponding to the new lines, openings, traces, leaps, dynamisms, discovered by a molecular biology of the brain: new linkings and re-linkings in thought.' -From the Afterword by the author, prepared especially for this edition 'Bergsonism represents an important moment in Deleuze's development.' -Review of Met aphysics 'Meticulously enjoyable supplement to the growing list of Deleuze's more important works..' - The Times Higher Education Supplement 'This translation of Bergsonism is an important, welcome addition to the English-speaking philosophical community. Deleuze elucidates and facilitates our comprehension of Bergson's original, fascinating, but difficult metaphysical idea that reality should be understood not in terms of space, but only in terms of time....' -Small Press
