Fukuoka Meeting of the Global Bergsonism Research Project

 Henri Bergson, ca. 1920

2nd Online Meeting of the Global Bergsonism Research Project - East Asia : an online webinar – 12, 18, 19 November 2021 Fukuoka University, Japan

dans le cadre du projet CNRS IRN « Un chapitre dans l’histoire globale de la philosophie : Nouvelles perspectives sur le bergsonisme » coordonné par Caterina Zanfi

 

Of all the philosophies of the early 20th century, Bergsonism has known the widest diffusion, creating a true global intellectual movement, producing local interpretations and new semantizations of Bergson’s thought. The Global Bergsonism research project aims to produce, via local chapters, a global history of Bergsonism, considered as an emblematic case of philosophical transfer.

In November 2021 a webinar will be hosted by Fukuoka University, in synergy with the “Project Bergson in Japan” (PBJ) led by Japanese Bergsonian scholars, to focus on Bergson studies in the East Asian area.

We are happy to present the programme below
