Deleuze's Philosophical Lineage

Paul Atkinson

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter examines the influence of Henri Bergson on Gilles Deleuze's philosophy. It explains that Deleuze was largely responsible for the renewed interest in the philosophy of Bergson, which was laid to rest in many circles as far back as 1962. The chapter discusses how Deleuze commended Bergson for his unwillingness to posit universal laws and carefully dissociates Bergson's philosophy from the charge of vague spiritualism through a thorough repositioning of his theory of intuition.

Keywords:   Henri Bergson, Gilles Deleuze, philosophy, universal laws, spiritualism, theory of intuition
