Most widely held works by Henri Bergson
Creative evolution by Henri Bergson( Book )

421 editions published between 1907 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 4,653 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 )

350 editions published between 1888 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 2,996 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 creative mind by Henri Bergson( Book )

168 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,525 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This collection comprises first of all, two introductory essays written especially for it, and consequently heretofore unpublished.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
An introduction to metaphysics by Henri Bergson( Book )

121 editions published between 1903 and 2013 in 11 languages and held by 2,377 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
Matter and memory by Henri Bergson( Book )

136 editions published between 1908 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,305 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
The two sources of morality and religion by Henri Bergson( Book )

48 editions published between 1900 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,101 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
Mind-energy, lectures and essays by Henri Bergson( Book )

239 editions published between 1919 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 1,937 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
Les deux sources de la morale et de la religion by Henri Bergson( Book )

231 editions published between 1931 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 1,615 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
Matière et mémoire; essai sur la relation du corps à l'esprit by Henri Bergson( Book )

215 editions published between 1896 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Extrait : ""Le point de départ de notre travail a été l'analyse qu'on trouvera dans le troisième chapitre de ce livre. Nous montrons dans ce chapitre, sur l'exemple précis du souvenir, que le même phénomène de l'esprit intéresse en même temps une multitude de plans de conscience différents qui marquent tous les intermédiaires entre le rêve et l'action (...)""

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

80 editions published between 1911 and 2015 in English and held by 903 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
