The two sources of morality and religion by Henri Bergson ( Book )
22 editions published between 1935 and 1977 in English and held by 1,170 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
Laughter : an essay on the meaning of the comic by Henri Bergson ( Book )
35 editions published between 1911 and 2011 in English and held by 788 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."--BOOK JACKET
