About 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.
