Matter and Memory (Barnes & Noble Digital Library) by Henri Bergson

Does spirit have a material basis? How does perception relate to memory and time? Does consciousness reflect the physical brain? Praised by William James and reputed to have influenced Proust, this towering 1911 work stands as one of Bergson’s major works, a milestone of 20th-century philosophy in which he declares memory to be a spiritual thing, not just a location of nerves in the brain.

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.
