French philosopher who influenced the work of intellectuals in the history of science, psychoanalysis, epistemology and the New Criticism. His books include "The Psychoanalysis of Fire," 1964, and "On Poetic Imagination and Reverie," 1971. He emphasized that the development of modern science defied the requirements of empirist or positivist epidemiologies and that the abstract nature of modern calculus deeply changed the nature of physical experience and theory. He died on 16 October 1962 at age 78 in Paris.
