Time and free will, an essay on the immediate data of consciousness by Henri Bergson( Book )

553 editions published between 1888 and 2018 in 11 languages and held by 4,379 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 )

352 editions published between 1931 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 4,039 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

L'évolution créatrice by Henri Bergson( Book )

461 editions published between 1907 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 2,300 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

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

87 editions published between 1911 and 2018 in English and held by 1,593 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
