In this chapter, Jankélévitch shows that Bergson’s The Two Sources of Morality and Religion adds one more antithesis—that of two moralities and two religions—to the oppositions of space and duration in Time and Free Will, pure perception and pure recollection in Matter and Memory, intelligence and instinct in Creative Evolution. There are no gradations between static and dynamic morality, between closed and open religion; it is with love as it is with movement: to find it, it must first be given, and all at once. Jankélévitch shows that for Bergson open morality and dynamic religion require a conversion, and that the maximalism of Two Sources takes the form a mediation of the punctual instant and emergence.
