Henri-Louis Bergson (1859–1941) was a major French philosopher, influential especially in the first half of the 20th century. Bergson convinced many thinkers that immediate experience and intuition are more significant than rationalism and science for understanding reality.
He was awarded the 1927 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his rich and vitalizing ideas and the brilliant skill with which they have been presented." In 1930, France awarded him its highest honour, the Grand-Croix de la Legion d'honneur.
This volume collects five of Bergson’s works, including his classic study Creative Evolution. All original footnotes and introductions are included. Contents:
LAUGHTER: AN ESSAY ON THE MEANING OF THE COMIC
THE MEANING OF THE WAR
THE FORCE WHICH WASTES AND THAT WHICH DOES NOT WASTE
