Prospects for the Future of Bergsonism
Bibliographical Note Time and Free Will (1889), which introduces the idea of duration in connection with psychology and motion, was Begson’s doctoral thesis. It was followed by Matter and Memory (1896), a complex analysis of matter and consciousness. Creative Evolution (1907), a study of duration manifested as life drive, as creation of life, became immensely popular soon after its publication. Mind-Energy (1919) is a collection of essays on the mind-body problem. Duration and Simultaneity (1922) contains a discussion with Einstein on the theory of relativity. The Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932) applies the theory of duration and intuition to social issues. Bergson’s last book The Creative Mind (1934) is a collection of various essays. For an extensive bibliography of books and articles which deal with Bergson’s thought, see J. Alexander Gunn, Bergson and His Philosophy (Whitefish, Montana: Kessinger Publishing, 2004) 104–59.
