ABSTRACT

The article focuses on the concept of image itself and the concept of artistic image in Bergson. The concept of image in Bergson is important to overcome the conventional dualism between essence and phenomenon, subject and object, and mind and body. Because the image as a whole is not only matter but also movement, and there is nothing behind it. We are incessantly connected with the outside world through our body and perception. The image of the outside world in itself is a flux as the independent movement-image regardless of us, but we also have its perception-image through body acting in it.The existing philosophies have brought up a wrong subject by treating it from just a speculative point of view. The so-called phenomenon, object, and thing are nothing but a selected, cut, and thereby fixed image which we perceive for our action in the world. In reality, the outer world and the inner world are a kind of flux and duration respectively. If we look at the percection-image from a viewpoint of action, therefore, we could see how we choose only the limited images through our sensorimotor system. However the artistic image comes into existence by the shock effect on this ordinary perception-image. It consists of two momentums. The one is the sublime that is the indirect time-image, and the other is the trans-realism that is the direct time-image. These two artistic momentums are extraordinary moments which are not in the Idea of subject and god, but in the plane of immanence. This is the purpose of this article.
