Vladimir Jankélévitch, Henri Bergson , Nils F. Schott and Alexandre Lefebvre (eds.), Nils F. Schott (tr.), Duke University Press, 2015, 322pp., $26.95 (pbk), ISBN 9780822359357.

The mind is, however, animated by an élan towards the real; the mind becomes generous in moving beyond itself towards a present that is always other than how the world has already been encountered. A generous mind does not remain with itself. It does not remain smug with its own past. Instead, as Jankélévitch notes, "going beyond itself, it [ generous mind ] seeks to encounter something other than its own image because it needs nourishing and truly positive realities" [107].

There certainly is love in closed communities, nation or family: nonetheless, loving against someone, loving by excluding enemies, is not yet loving with that infinite love that is charity. The veritable break is thus not between family and city, which are, all in all, two groupings of the same type, but between the city and humankind. [154]
