Creative evolution by Henri Bergson( Book )

713 editions published between 1901 and 2023 in 11 languages and held by 7,522 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 )

549 editions published between 1888 and 2021 in 12 languages and held by 4,425 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
The two sources of morality and religion by Henri Bergson( Book )

366 editions published between 1931 and 2020 in 14 languages and held by 4,300 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

An introduction to metaphysics by Henri Bergson( Book )

"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

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

214 editions published between 1900 and 2021 in 14 languages and held by 1,727 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

La pensée et le mouvant : essais et conférences by Henri Louis Bergson( Book )

115 editions published between 1934 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Au fond des doctrines qui méconnaissent la nouveauté radicale de chaque moment de l'évolution il y a bien des malentendus, bien des erreurs. Mais il y a surtout l'idée que le possible est moins que le réel, et que, pour cette raison, la possibilité des choses précède leur existence. Elles seraient ainsi représentables par avance ; elles pourraient être pensées avant d'être réalisées. Mais c'est l'inverse qui est la vérité. Si nous laissons de côté les systèmes clos, soumis à des lois purement mathématiques, isolables parce que la durée ne mord pas sur eux, si nous considérons l'ensemble de la réalité concrète ou tout simplement le monde de la vie, et à plus forte raison celui de la conscience, nous trouvons qu'il y a plus, et non pas moins, dans la possibilité de chacun des états successifs que dans leur réalité. Car le possible n'est que le réel avec, en plus, un acte de l'esprit qui en rejette l'image dans le passé une fois qu'il s'est produit. Mais c'est ce que nos habitudes intellectuelles nous empêchent d'apercevoir." Henri Bergson
