Time and Free Will (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) [NOOK Book]

Overview


A cornerstone of Bergson’s thought, this early work challenges the ideas of Herbert Spencer and Immanuel Kant. Bergson introduces his concept of Duration, and argues in defense of free will, and therefore against Kant—who said we cannot know whether free will is a reality, for it can only exist outside of time and space. Bergson’s notions of time, as set forth in this book, had a tremendous impact on Marcel Proust’s work.

Meet the Author


Henri-Louis Bergson (1859-1941) received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1927. A major French philosopher during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, he argued that intuition and experience outweigh the intellect. Born in Paris, he pursued a parallel career in diplomacy, working in support of the League of Nations.

    Sinon

    Age: 17/ height: 5'4"/ weight: 90 pounds/ weapons: pmc hecate 50. Cal sniper rifle, mp7, taurus .357/ clothes: black short shorts, green thigh high stalkings, black combat boots, a white tanktop and a green longsleeve military jacket with a white choker./ appearance: short skyblue hair with long bangs brushed up from the front and indigo colored eyes./ alignment: chaotic good. Side: generally she prefers to be alone. However she will willingly trade and offer some sort of protection to any wanderers or sides. However, the second a gun is drawn on her, that person is dead to her. Few people can make her truly angry and call upon her wrath./ backstory: ever since the apocalypse went down, it's unhinged her slightly. When someone broke into her house where she and her mother were, she was forced to kill the intruder with his own gun. Her mother was later bitten and she was forced to end her as well. Plus just the overall apocalypse just really affected her./ personnality: find out.
