First published in Italian in 2013, followed by a virtually simultaneous translation into French (with a preface by Frédéric Worms) and by a recent translation into German, Bergson and German philosophy 1907-1932, the result of the doctoral thesis of Caterina Zanfi, is certainly one of the greatest contributions to Bergsonian studies in the last ten years. The author had already released in 2009 a significant study, entitled Bergson, la tecnica, la guerra (Bononia University Press), but her second book goes further. Such enthusiasm, we hope, will be justified through this review, which will not prevent us from raising some points that we consider problematic in the book, that, of course, in the best spirit of academic comradeship.
