Creative evolution by Henri Bergson( Book )

171 editions published between 1911 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 4,795 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A philosophical, metaphysical view of evolution
Time and free will, an essay on the immediate data of consciousness by Henri Bergson( Book )

504 editions published between 1888 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 4,615 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
The two sources of morality and religion by Henri Bergson( Book )

331 editions published between 1931 and 2019 in 12 languages and held by 3,973 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 )

123 editions published between 1911 and 2018 in English and held by 2,392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'évolution créatrice by Henri Bergson( Book )

461 editions published between 1907 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,324 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

Le rire; essai sur la signification du comique by Henri Bergson( Book )

386 editions published between 1900 and 2019 in 5 languages and held by 1,706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pourquoi rions-nous de voir quelqu'un trébucher ? Pour quelles raisons Molière continue-t-il de nous amuser ? Comment expliquer qu'un jeu de mots ou un trait d'esprit prêtent à sourire ? Dans Le Rire, qu'il publie en 1900, Bergson apporte à ces questions des réponses décisives. S'appuyant sur des exemples quotidiens et de nombreuses références littéraires, il décrypte les formes du comique pour y déceler un ressort commun : l'"interférence de deux séries", c'est-à-dire la présence simultanée de deux éléments distincts ou incompatibles. Au passage, il ne manque pas d'analyser le rôle social ambivalent d'un réflexe qui tout à la fois manifeste l'élan vital et brime les comportements hors normes. Si cette oeuvre, qui doit beaucoup à une tradition classique, méconnaît les manifestations transgressives, sombres, ludiques ou absurdes, du rire, elle n'en demeure pas moins capitale pour qui veut comprendre le "propre de l'homme". - 4ème de couverture
Laughter : an essay on the meaning of the comic by Henri Bergson( )

91 editions published between 1911 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,643 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

L'esprit et la matière sont réels et on peut déterminer le rapport de l'un à l'autre à partir de l'exemple de la mémoire, dont il est constamment question dans l'histoire de la philosophie.

Matière et mémoire; essai sur la relation du corps à l'esprit by Henri Bergson( )

38 editions published between 1896 and 2015 in French and Undetermined and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publié en 1896, Matière et mémoire est le livre qui imposa Bergson comme un philosophe de premier plan. Il y aborde une question philosophique essentielle, celle des relations du corps et de l'esprit. Par le choix de sa méthode, il fait dialoguer d'une manière singulière la métaphysique a et la psychologie, l'analyse des concepts et les apports de la science, alors en plein renouvellement. Pour lui, pas de connaissance de l'esprit sans connaissance de la mémoire et de ses défaillances, que psychologues et neurologues ont commencé à appréhender; pas de connaissance du corps sans une interrogation sur la matière, qui doit rencontrer celle des physiciens. Si Bergson, en soutenant que la vie mentale ne se réduit pas à la vie cérébrale, s'inscrit dans le débat intellectuel de son temps, la portée générale de l'ouvrage invite à réexaminer des questions qui, plus d'un siècle plus tard, sont toujours les nôtres. -- 4ème de couverture
Dreams by Henri Bergson( )

29 editions published between 1914 and 2017 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before the dawn of history mankind was engaged in the study of dreaming. The wise man among the ancients was pre?minently the interpreter of dreams. The ability to interpret successfully or plausibly was the quickest road to royal favor, as Joseph and Daniel found it to be; failure to give satisfaction in this respect led to banishment from court or death. When a scholar laboriously translates a cuneiform tablet dug up from a Babylonian mound where it has lain buried for five thousand years or more, the chances are that it will turn out either an astrological treatise or a dream book. If the former, we look upon it with some indulgence; if the latter with pure contempt. For we know that the study of the stars, though undertaken for selfish reasons and pursued in the spirit of charlatanry, led at length to physical science, while the study of dreams has proved as unprofitable as the dreaming of them. Out of astrology grew astronomy. Out of oneiromancy has grown-nothing. That at least was substantially true up to the beginning of the present century. Dream books in all languages continued to sell in cheap editions and the interpreters of dreams made a decent or, at any rate, a comfortable living out of the poorer classes. But the psychologist rarely paid attention to dreams except incidentally in his study of imagery, association and the speed of thought. But now a change has come over the spirit of the times. The subject of the significance of dreams, so long ignored, has suddenly become a matter of energetic study and of fiery controversy the world over. Its chief interest for the general reader will, however, lie in the explanation it gives him of the cause of some of his familiar dreams. He may by practice become the interpreter of his own visions and so come to an understanding of the vagaries of that mysterious and inseparable companion, his dream-self
The meaning of the war : life & matter in conflict by Henri Bergson( Book )

42 editions published between 1914 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 461 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The events leading up to the outbreak of World War I galvanized early-twentieth-century thinkers and intellectuals, prompting many to revisit the political and philosophical causes and implications of armed conflict. The Meaning of War is derived from the text of a talk that Henri Bergson, an important French philosopher, delivered to the president and key government officials in December 1914
