Henri Bergson (1859-1941) wrote seminal texts on topics that remain at the heart of current philosophical inquiry, such as time, consciousness, and evolution. His impact on the philosophical, scientific, and literary modernism of the first half of the 20th century was extraordinary. Interest in Bergson's ideas is undergoing a timely and welcome renaissance. This volume acts as a textbook for pedagogic purposes and a helpful source book for philosophers working across the analytic/continental divide.

Reviews

"Henri Bergson: Key Writings will change the way we will think about Twentieth Century philosophy. It includes selections from all of Bergson s important published texts and English translations of other never before translated texts. Ansell-Pearson and Mullarkey have done a great job; their Preface to the volume is one of the best introductions to (and expansions of) Bergson s philosophy available in any language." Leonard Lawlor, University of Memphis
