Abstract

In this work, cinema has been investigated philosophically through the ideas of Henri Bergson and Gilles Deleuze, who uses Bergson’s ideas as a basis in his cinema books The Time-Image and The Movement-Image. To clarify the effect of Bergson in Deleuze’s works, a detailed account of Bergsonian philosophy has been investigated. After stating Bergson’s philosophy, the trace of his philosophical terms are revealed in Deleuze’s cinema books, and thereby a critique of Deleuze’s Bergsonian approach has been developed by pointing out that Deleuze does not consider Bergson’s philosophical terms, which are efficient enough to consider cinema philosophically, and implants his own concepts into Bergsonian approach.
