This paper was provoked by late night discussions of Bergsonian and Husserlian method with Rocco Gangle, Heath Massey, and Joshua Ramey, at the Collegium Phaenomenologicum XXVI: Thinking through the Difference between Immanence and Transcendence: Leuinas, Bergson, and Deleuze. My thanks to them for their provocations, and to Leonard Lawlor for setting up the context in which such discussions were possible. An earlier version of this paper was presented at Bergson in Context, the annual conference of the British Society for Phenomenology, March 2003, St. Hilda's College. I would like to thank members of the audience for their questions, and especially John Mullarkey and Valentine Moulard for their astute criticisms.
