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

371 editions published between 1888 and 2014 in 15 languages and held by 3,252 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, in human experience life is perceived as a continuous and unmeasurable flow rather than as a succession of marked-off states of consciousness--something that can be measured not quantitatively, but only qualitatively. His conclusion is that free will is an observable fact
The two sources of morality and religion by Henri Bergson( Book )

145 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 3,029 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Henri 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. --From publisher's description
The creative mind by Henri Bergson( Book )

172 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection comprises ... two introductory essays written especially for it, and ... 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 ... [It] is a sequal to [a book which appeared in 1919 under the title L'energie spirituelle]"--Preface
An introduction to metaphysics by Henri Bergson( Book )

138 editions published between 1903 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 2,429 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

225 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 1,885 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mind-Energy brings together Bergson's most important lectures and articles between 1901 and 1913 in the philosophy of mind and the metaphysics of time. This new critical edition makes these important texts available again, using the original authorized translation by H. Wild on Carr, adding a guide to further reading and a new introduction by Bergson specialist Keith Ansell Pearson."--Jacket
Duration and simultaneity, with reference to Einstein's theory by Henri Bergson( Book )

73 editions published between 1922 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 1,038 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

47 editions published between 1911 and 2013 in English and French and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It may be pointed out that the essay on Laughter originally appeared in a series of three articles in one of the leading magazines in France, the Revue de Paris. This will account for the relatively simple form of the work and the comparative absence of technical terms. It will also explain why the author has confined himself to exposing and illustrating his novel theory of the comic without entering into a detailed discussion of other explanations already in the field. He none the less indicates, when discussing sundry examples, why the principal theories, to which they have given rise, appear to him inadequate. To quote only a few, one may mention those based on contrast, exaggeration, and degradation"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Mit diesem 1957 von Gilles Deleuze zusammengestellten Band, der in einer kongenialen Aneinanderreihung von Textpassagen aus allen wichtigen Werken Bergsons einen guten Überblick über das Bergsonsche Denken vermittelt, begann die Wiederentdeckung Bergsons in Frankreich nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg.

Sämtliche Texte wurden von Margarethe Drewsen einheitlich neu übersetzt; der Band lässt sich dadurch wie eine kompakte
