The Dialectic of Duration Hardback
Part of the Groundworks series
In The Dialectic of Duration Gaston Bachelard addresses the nature of time in response to the writings of his great contemporary, Henri Bergson.
For Bachelard, experienced time is irreducibly fractured and interrupted, as indeed are material events.
At stake is an entire conception of the physical world, an entire approach to the philosophy of science.
It was in this work that Bachelard first marshalled all the components of his visionary philosophy of science, with its steady insistence on the human context and subtle encompassing of the irrational within the rational.
