Bergson’s philosophy emphasises the importance of intuition in the geometric method, and reflects my earlier discussions about extensity, intensity, memory, the soul and the body. But his rigorous critique of scientific geometric thinking and metaphysics also suggests a radical departure from these methods, which is embodied in the notion of the ‘living act’. In this chapter, the geometric method is therefore pushed to one of its most intensive limits in the constitution of the aesthetic and intuitive body.
