Politics and Experience: Bergsonism               beyond Transcendence and Immanence

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the Bergsonism concepts of politics and experience beyond transcendence and immanence. It suggests that the fundamental human relations that determine the shape of personal, social, and ecological worlds are not governed by legal or institutional principles but by constitutive practices. It proposes that the initial postulation of the relation between concepts of transcendence and immanence may be crucial for determining the future cohesion between religious philosophies and perspectives.

Keywords: Bergsonism concepts; politics; experience; transcendence; immanence; religious philosophy
