"The strength of this book is the way that it remedies the scholarly neglect of Henri Bergson's political and religious thought, especially as found in his last book, The Two Sources of Morality and Religion. Together, these essays provide a more well-rounded view of Bergson's complete project and show how he can contribute to rethinking a number of current issues in sociological, political, and religious thought." John Protevi, author of Political Affect: Connecting the Social and the Somatic "[T]hese essayists are all very earnest about us risking a separation between intellectual and instinctual tendencies. Their work will be warmly welcomed by students of early twentieth century polemological, political psychological and perhaps political ecological action as well." - Political Studies Review
