"Bergson's Two Sources: Moral Invention and Relation"

In my dissertation I work to understand Henri Bergson's "The Two Sources of Morality and Religion" through two lenses: that of the earlier Bergson's (1896-1907) account of the intellect and that of contemporary relational ethics.

Dissertation Chair(s):
