A philosophical, metaphysical view of evolution
The two sources of morality and religion by Henri Bergson( Book )

219 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 3,218 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
Time and free will, an essay on the immediate data of consciousness by Henri Bergson( Book )

350 editions published between 1888 and 2015 in 13 languages and held by 2,982 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 )

192 editions published between 1900 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,764 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This collection comprises first of all, two introductory essays written especially for it, and consequently heretofore unpublished.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

"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

Wild on Carr, adding a guide to further reading and a new introduction by Bergson specialist Keith Ansell Pearson."--Jacket

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

79 editions published between 1911 and 2015 in English and held by 902 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

Henri Bergson by Jacques Chevalier( Book )

26 editions published between 1910 and 1989 in French and Undetermined and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Appearing in English for the first time, Vladimir Jankélévitch's Henri Bergson is one of the two great commentaries written on Henri Bergson. Gilles Deleuze's Bergsonism renewed interest in the great French philosopher but failed to consider Bergson's experiential and religious perspectives. Here Jankélévitch covers all aspects of Bergson's thought, emphasizing the concepts of time and duration, memory, evolution, simplicity, love, and joy. A friend of Bergson's, Jankélévitch first published this book in 1931 and revised it in 1959 to treat Bergson's later works. This unabridged translation of the 1959 edition includes an editor's introduction, which contextualizes and outlines Jankélévitch's reading of Bergson, additional essays on Bergson by Jankélévitch, and Bergson's letters to Jankélévitch. -- from back cover
