History

(from Wikipedia entry)

Henri-Louis Bergson (18 October 1859 - 4 January 1941) was a French continental philosopher often associated with French Spiritualism. Bergson was born in Paris. In 1891, he married Louise Neuberger, a cousin of Marcel Proust, who was the best man at Bergson`s wedding. Bergson`s philosophy professed the importance of intuition, perception, and experience over abstract rationalism. One of his most lasting concepts, later taken up by French philosopher Gilles Deleuze, is that of multiplicity. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1927 and the Grand-Croix de la Legion d`Honneur in 1930. His wife destroyed his writings (at his request) resulting in decline in interest in his works throughout the 20thC.
