    Interpreting Bergson: Critical Essays.Alexandre Lefebvre & Nils F. Schott (eds.) - 2020 - Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.
    Bergson was a pre-eminent European philosopher of the early twentieth century and his work covers all major branches of philosophy.

The essays explore Bergson's influence on a number of different fields, and also extend his thought to pressing issues of our time, including (...)

    Love and Forgiveness for a More Just World.Hent de Vries & Nils F. Schott (eds.) - 2015 - New York, NY: Columbia University Press.
    One can love and not forgive or out of love decide not to forgive. Or one can forgive but not love, or choose to forgive but not love the ones forgiven. Love and forgiveness follow parallel and largely independent paths, a truth we fail to acknowledge when we pressure others to both love and forgive. Individuals in conflict, sparring social and ethnic groups, warring religious communities, and insecure nations often do not need to pursue love and forgiveness to achieve peace (...)

    Artificial Presence: Philosophical Studies in Image Theory.Lambert Wiesing & Nils F. Schott (eds.) - 2009 - Stanford, CA: Stanford University Press.
    These collected studies on the philosophy of the image offer the fundamental insight that images alone make the artificial presence of things possible. Images present things as exclusively visible, released from the laws of physics. Taking this idea as his point of departure, Wiesing provides an overview of the fundamental positions in contemporary image studies. He describes the use of images as signs from a phenomenological perspective, reconstructs Plato's concept of mimesis by way of the canon of images it presupposes, (...)

  4. Fraud: The World of Ona'ah.Nils F. Schott (ed.) - 2013 - Stanford University Press.
    We can calculate financial fraud, but how do we measure bad faith? How can we evaluate the words of the pharmaceutical industry or of eco-scientific ideologies, or the subtle deception found in political scheming? Henri Atlan sheds light on these questions through the concept of _ona'ah_, which in Hebrew refers to both fraud in financial transactions and the verbal injury inflicted by speech. The world of _ona'ah_ is a world of an "in-between," where the impossible purity of absolute Platonic truth (...)

  5. Henri Bergson.Vladimir Jankélévitch, Nils F. Schott & Alexandre Lefebvre (eds.) - 2015 - Durham, NC: Duke University Press.
    Appearing here in English for the first time, Vladimir Jankélévitch's _Henri Bergson_ is one of the two great commentaries written on Henri Bergson. Gilles Deleuze's _Bergsonism_ renewed interest in the great French philosopher but failed to consider Bergson's experiential and religious perspectives. Here Jankélévitch covers all aspects of Bergson's thought, emphasizing the concepts of time and duration, memory, evolution, simplicity, love, and joy. A friend of Bergson's, Jankélévitch first published this book in 1931 and revised it in 1959 to treat (...)
