La philosophie de la perception de Maurice Pradines

Héritage et critique de Bergson

  • Caroline Guendouz


Pradines elaborates his philosophy of perception from a viewpoint which is both bergsonian and anti-bergsonian. According to Pradines, it is true that Bergson had the merit ofthinking perception in accordance with its vital dimension, however its is necessary to make its approach more radical. According to Pradines, this consists in constructing a philosophy of space that not only reveals the limits of bergsonism but also permits to account for intentionality of living being as an encounter with a world to be runed away or conquested. Thus, the correlative appearance of spatiality and vital intelligence makes it possible to reconsider, against Bergson once a gain, the status of memory and also the relationship between psychology, theory of knowledge and metaphysics.
