Most widely held works by Henri Bergson
Time and free will, an essay on the immediate data of consciousness by Henri Bergson( Book )

503 editions published between 1888 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 3,446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bergson argues for free will by showing that the arguments against it come from a confusion of different conceptions of time. As opposed to physicists' idea of measurable time, life is perceived in human experience as a continuous and immeasurable flow rather than as a succession of marked-off states of consciousness."--Publisher description
Creative evolution by Henri Bergson( Book )

141 editions published between 1911 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 3,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A philosophical, metaphysical view of evolution
An introduction to metaphysics by Henri Bergson( Book )

148 editions published between 1903 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 2,477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the key text for understanding the development of Bergson's thought from his early treatises on duration to the extension of this concept towards a general cosmology and an ethico-political ontology. In a new critical edition of this crucial work, the original authorised translation by T.E. Hulme has been restored and supplemented with new translations of Bergson's later amendments to the text, a guide to further reading and a new introduction."--Jacket
L'évolution créatrice by Henri Bergson( Book )

449 editions published between 1907 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 2,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"La philosophie n'est pas seulement le retour de l'esprit à lui-même, la coïncidence de la conscience humaine avec le principe vivant d'où elle émane, une prise de contact avec l'effort créateur. Elle est l'approfondissement du devenir en général, l'évolutionnisme vrai, et par conséquent le vrai prolongement de la science - pourvu qu'on entende par ce dernier mot un ensemble de vérités constatées ou démontrées, et non pas une certaine scolastique nouvelle qui a poussé pendant la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle autour de la physique de Galilée, comme l'ancienne autour d'Aristote
The two sources of morality and religion by Henri Bergson( Book )

61 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Henri Bergson (1859-1941) was one of the great philosophers of our era whose concept of creative evolution continues to dominate a large area of modern thought. In Bergson's view, the world includes two opposing tendencies - life and matter. LIfe is dynamic, has force and will, and struggles for richness and complexity through and beyond matter. Matter is the congealed residue of creation that has already taken place and, according to the laws of nature, is in a gradual state of erosion. Morality and religion, Bergson shows in the present book, may be regarded in similar terms. They partake, on the one hand, of a static principle, combining nature's heritage and the accrual of past forms, and a dynamic principle through which morality and religion remain always in crisis, always alive to contingency and growth. In the course of this study Bergson inquires into the nature of moral obligation, into the place of religion and the purpose it has served since primitive times, into static religion and its value in preserving man from the dangers of his own intelligence; into dynamic religion or mysticism as a manifestation of the life force and a means of producing man's forward leap beyond the limits of the closed society for which nature intended him and into the open society which is the brotherhood of man"--Unedited summary from book cover
Matter and memory by Henri Bergson( Book )

109 editions published between 1911 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,035 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classic philosophical study of the selection, recognition, survival and fixing of images within the mind and their relationship with matter in movement
Les deux sources de la morale et de la religion by Henri Bergson( Book )

307 editions published between 1931 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 1,862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comment les sociétés se forment-elles? Pourquoi sʹaffrontent-elles? Ces conflits peuvent-ils être évités? Morale et religion visent-elles seulement à rendre possible la vie en société, ou permettent-elles à lʹespèce humaine de dépasser sa condition naturelle et de trouver une issue à la violence? Telles sont quelques-unes des questions au cœur des Deux Sources de la morale et de la religion (1932), la somme de philosophie morale et politique de Bergson, qui fut aussi son dernier grand livre. Dans ce texte hanté par le spectre de la guerre et par le développement de la technique, mais aussi guidé par une méditation sur le mysticisme chrétien, Bergson articule lʹétude de la société à sa philosophie de la vie. Mettant sa doctrine à lʹépreuve, il sʹefforce de formuler des principes dʹaction pour des hommes devenus conscients de la nécessité dʹaffronter leur destin commun. Et tandis que "lʹhumanité gémit, à demi écrasée sous le poids des progrès quʹelle a faits", il nous rappelle que son avenir dépend dʹelle
The creative mind by Henri Bergson( Book )

95 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,862 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection comprises first of all, two introductory essays written especially for it, and consequently heretofore unpublished. They make up a third of the volume. The rest are articles or lectures, mostly out of print, which appeared in France or in other countries. Taken as a whole, they date from the period between 1903 and 1923. They bear mainly upon the method I believe should be recommended to the philosopher. To go back to the origin of this method, to trace the direction it impresses upon research, is the particular object of the two essays which make up the introduction

Extrait : ""Le point de départ de notre travail a été l'analyse qu'on trouvera dans le troisième chapitre de ce livre.

Laughter : an essay on the meaning of the comic by Henri Bergson( Book )

85 editions published between 1911 and 2015 in English and held by 910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this great philosophical essay, Henri Bergson explores why people laugh and what laughter means. First translated into English in 1911, this important work has long been unavailable."--BOOK JACKET. "The author of Creative Evolution and other influential works of the Twentieth Century begins with a discussion of laughter in general, focusing in the second part on laughter in situations and the comic in words, and, in the final section, on the comic in character. From Punch-and-Judy shows to Figaro, from a man falling down in the street to the great comic figures of Moliere's plays, Bergson explores the implications and full meaning of laughter, concluding ultimately that laughter is corrective: "By laughter, society avenges itself for the liberties taken with it. It would fail in its object if it bore the stamp of sympathy or kindness." Accordingly, Bergson argues, laughter serves a useful function to mankind."--Jacket
