A Crítica se Maurice Blondel ao Conceito Bergsoniano de Intuição

Henri Bergson and Maurice Blondel, contemporary philosophers who share a common influence of the "spiritualist positivism", show effective conditions for an eventual approximation. Nevertheless, the relative philosophic atitude of each of them is fundamentally marked by divergencies which come to light in the particular case of the concept of "intuition". With a common general definition, "intuition" gains precise specificities in each author due to its appearance in different phases of the course of both philosophies, aroused by different motivations and bearing distinct function and consequence.
