Bergson, Henri (1859-1941)
Paris-born philosopher and celebrated member of the French literate class. By way of his philosophy of dynamism he
described a vital principle, or living impulse, at work in the universe. Contrary to Darwins notion of natural
selection, Bergson posited such a non-materialistic, non-mechanistic creative
urge in nature as the driving force of biological evolution.
