Abstract [Eng]

There was no real dialogue between Bergson and Gentile. The French philosopher doesn’t know Gentile. The Italian philosopher, on his part, knows Bergson, but considers him as the author of a “modest philosophy” that can be confined to the field of Psychology, if not to that of Psychophys­iology. The two philosophers share an identical speculative gesture, despite the indisputable difference of the “external and historical” frame of the two philosophies. They both develop a philosophy of absolute immanence which aims at creating a new model of the intelligibility of becoming, suitable to the “complexity” of the real. This philosophy is in compliance with a cer­tain line of thinking of the twentieth century – from pragmatism to White­head’s Philosophy of Organism, from Ruyer’s Philosophy of Biology to the Simondonian reflection on individuation, up to the Ontology of Deleuze – undoubtedly supported only by a minority but more than ever modern and necessary today.
