Suzanne Guerlac: Henri Bergson and the Energy of Time
Henri Bergson and the Energy of Time
Suzanne Guerlac, Professor of French Literature, UC Berkeley; Author, Thinking in Time: An Introduction to Henri Bergson
Monday Night Philosophy focuses on Henri Bergson, who asks us to think not only about time, but in time. He asks us to think dynamically instead of statically. Professor Guerlac shows how this leads, as Bergson puts it, to the "breaking of many frames" and philosophical frameworks, as well as to a new way of writing philosophy.
