Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews have published a review of Bergson, Complexity and Creative Emergence by John Protevi, Louisiana State University.
Protevi has mixed reactions to the book, concerned that inattention to customary practices in the discipline results in limiting “the benefits” of the book “for philosophers”.  But he engages with the subject knowledgeably and concludes that the book “has its rewarding points — in particular the overview of Bergson’s thought in Chapter 2 and the history of systems theory offered in Chapter 4,” and that the main thrust of the book in Chapter 5 is “certainly provocative and worth further thought.”
