Life, thinking and phenomenology in the early Bergson

In Michael R. Kelly (ed.), Bergson and Phenomenology. Palgrave-Macmillan. pp. 118--133 (2010)

Abstract

How should we appraise Bergson’s relation to phenomenology? There are different ways to tackle this question. In the following my focus will be quite narrow. I will restrict myself to a close reading of Bergson’s doctoral dissertation Essai sur les données immédiates de la conscience. The question I wish to ask is basically whether the analysis of consciousness that Bergson provides in the second chapter of the dissertation is phenomenologically convincing.
