Programme Fukuoka Meeting of the Global Bergsonism Research Project (an online webinar) – 12, 18, 19 November 2021 – Fukuoka University, Japan

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

Call for papers: Fukuoka Meeting of the Global Bergsonism Research Project (an online webinar) – 12, 18, 19 November 2021 – Fukuoka University, Japan

 

*** THE DEADLINE IS EXTENDED UNTIL JULY 1, 2021 ***

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.

A webinar hosted by Penn State University in November 2020 showed the vitality of Bergson studies in North American area by creating fertile crossroads of perspectives, particularly on the question of ecology, life sciences and politics, and postcolonial philosophy. In the next years the project will encourage further research, through five international meetings in Japan, Brazil, Cameroon, Lithuania and Turkey in the framework of the CNRS International Research Network (IRN) “A Chapter in the Global History of Philosophy: New Perspectives on Bergsonism”, whose goals are the writing of a world history of Bergsonism, making available the philosophical contributions to Bergson studies from all over the world, and establishing an international network of scholars and activities in Bergson studies from different geographical areas.

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.

Bergson and Vitalism(s): An Online Workshop – April 29-30, 2021 | Ghent University – University Toulouse Jean Jaurès

This workshop aims to provide a reassessment of the relationship between Bergson’s philosophy of life and vitalism by combining perspectives from historians of philosophy, historians of science, and philosophers. Such a reassessment is needed to gain better understanding of Bergson’s role in the history and philosophy of biology as well as provide a reappraisal of Bergson’s contribution to current debates in biology and the philosophy of biology.

Le CNRS soutient le projet sur le bergsonisme dans l’histoire globale de la philosophie par un IRN

Le Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique soutient par son outil de coopération international International Research Network le projet « Un chapitre dans l’histoire globale de la philosophie : Nouvelles perspectives sur le bergsonisme » de 2021 à 2025.

Les débats méthodologiques sur l’histoire globale et les transferts culturels ont été extrêmement animés au cours des dernières décennies et ont montré leur fertilité dans la plupart des domaines.

Cependant, en ce qui concerne l’histoire de la philosophie, de telles recherches font encore défaut. La méthodologie de ces enquêtes n’est pas bien définie et dépend encore beaucoup des approches nationales. Les recherches actuelles sur l’histoire de la philosophie, en particulier sur le 20e siècle, traitent néanmoins non seulement des variations historiques au sein des systèmes de pensée, mais aussi des questions relatives à la circulation globale des tendances philosophiques.

Call for Abstracts: Bergson and Vitalism(s): An Online Workshop – April 29-30, 2021 | University of Ghent

Workshop Organizer: Mathilde Tahar (Université Toulouse Jean Jaurès)

In his 1907 bestseller Creative Evolution, the French philosopher Henri Bergson, weighed in on one of the burning issues of the day: biological evolution. He used an “image”, the élan vital (vital impetus) to describe the unpredictability, unity and branching nature of the history of life. The book earned Bergson international fame but also cemented the association between his name and a controversial label with a complex history: vitalism. In the words of philosophers Daniel Nicholson and Richard Gawne, nowadays, “to publicly accuse someone of harbouring vitalist views amounts to condemning them to the scorching fires of scientific hell”. This partially explains why current (in particular anglophone) historians and philosophers often ignore or disregard Bergson’s contribution to the history and philosophy of biology. As a result, the importance of Bergson’s philosophy of life in such areas has, until now, mostly been underplayed.                                                                                            

This workshop aims to provide a much-needed reassessment of the relationship between Bergson’s philosophy of life and vitalism by combining perspectives from historians of philosophy, historians of science, and philosophers. Such a reassessment is needed to gain better understanding of Bergson’s role in the history and philosophy of biology as well as provide a reappraisal of Bergson’s important contribution to current debates in biology and philosophy of biology.

Bergson Bibliography: Call for contributions

 

As part of the Global Bergsonism project, the Société des Amis de Bergson is launching a completely new Henri Bergson bibliography using the online Zotero platform.

The most recent complete Bergsonian bibliography, edited by Pete Gunter, dates from 1986. It is urgent that a new bibliography be made available to researchers, updated in two directions: firstly to integrate certain linguistic and cultural areas that are only partially represented by Gunter’s bibliography, (2) and also to present the last 34 years of research, which have been among the most productive for Bergsonian researchers around the world, as well as for the edition of Bergson’s manuscripts, correspondence and courses. The new Bergson Bibliography will be the most comprehensive and accessible directory of Bergson studies. It will be a widely distributed, multilingual bibliography, based on the open source software Zotero, available online without a license. 

The platform allows scholars to add and download bibliographical references and is completely public. The current version may be accessed here
