Northwestern University Press, 1999 - Performing Arts - 169 pages
Bergson and Russian Modernism provides a portrait of the early twentieth-century intersection of literature, philosophy, and art, showing how the Russian reception of Bergsonian philosophy helped to define Russian Modernism. By drawing on various works of Russian religious thought, Symbolism, Post-Symbolism, and the absurd, Fink examines Bergson's appeal to Russian modernists interested in breaking free of traditional concepts of time and space and in reclaiming the direct link with reality that had been broken by nineteenth-century rationalism and empiricism.
