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

2 editions published between 1914 and 1945 in French and held by 14 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 )

1 edition published in 1946 in French and held by 6 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This collection comprises first of all, two introductory essays written especially for it, and consequently heretofore unpublished.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 )

1 edition published in 1916 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
