Bergson, Plotinus and the Harmonics of Evolution

Hubbard, Lynn


Lynn Hubbard


This thesis argues that Bergson and Plotinus replicate the Pythagorean tradition by proposing a philosophy of dynamic transformation underpinned by two fundamental and interlinked premises: a universe generated and governed by a natural law of musical harmonics, and the concept of kairos as time signifying the emergence of qualitative change.
