Henri Bergson — was one of the most famous and influential French philosophers of the late 19th century-early 20th century. Although his international fame reached cult-like heights during his lifetime, his influence decreased notably after the second World War. Many philosophers today think that this concept of multiplicity, despite its difficulty, is revolutionary. It is revolutionary because it opens the way to a reconception of community. Bergson was born in Paris on October 18, ; he was the second of seven children of a Polish Father and English mother; both of his parents were Jewish. Bergson was a notably exceptional pupil throughout his childhood.


Henri Bergson

Bergson sought to improve upon inadequacies he perceived in the philosophy of Herbert Spencer , due, he believed, to Spencer's lack of comprehension of mechanics , which led Bergson to the conclusion that time eluded mathematics and science. For the individual, time may speed up or slow down, whereas, for science, it would remain the same. Hence Bergson decided to explore the inner life of man, which is a kind of duration, neither a unity nor a quantitative multiplicity. It can only be grasped through a simple intuition of the imagination. It is used as a defense of free will in a response to Immanuel Kant , who believed free will was only possible outside time and space. Zeno of Elea believed reality was an uncreated and indestructible immobile whole.
