Full description for Intuition of the Instant
Appearing in English for the first time, "Intuition of the Instant"--Bachelard's first metaphysical meditation on time and its moral implications--was written in 1932 in the wake of Husserl's lectures on streaming time-consciousness, Heidegger's "Being and Time, " and Henri Bergson's philosophy of the elan vital. A culmination of Bachelard's earlier studies in scientific epistemology, this work builds the epistemic framework that would lead theorists of all stripes to advance knowledge by breaking with accepted modes of thought. "Intuition of the Instant "sows the seeds of Bachelard's future poetics, most notably in the essay "Poetic Instant and Metaphysical Instant" (1939)--included in this volume, along with an excerpt from Jean Lescure's lecture "Introduction to Bachelard's Poetics" (1966). Eileen Rizo-Patron's translation offers a key to Bachelard's subsequent works on science, time, and imagination, which remain epistemological touchstones.
