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.

Bachelard's strikingly original conception of time shapes both his philosophy of science and his work on the poetic imagination. Beginning with discontinuity, he explores the way different forms of duration are constructed, bringing out the unique qualities of each. It is a brilliant study of temporal pluralism, dedicated to repose, creativity, and happiness. -- David Webb, Professor of Philosophy, Staffordshire University In a polemic against Bergson's elan vital, Bachelard argues for a discontinuous time made of instants out of which we construct new durations (and deconstruct old ossified ones) to launch projects and lead lives of creative rhythms. Together with the earlier L'Intuition de l'instant, this profound and strikingly original meditation on time forms the `metaphysical' core of Bachelard's thought. -- Zbigniew Kotowicz, author of Gaston Bachelard: A Philosophy of the Surreal
