Matter and Memory
Courier Corporation, 2004 - Philosophy - 339 pages
A monumental work by an important philosopher, Matter and Memory represents one of the great inquiries into perception and memory, movement and time, matter and mind. Henri Bergson surveys these independent but related spheres, exploring the connection of mind and body to individual freedom of choice. Essential to an understanding of Bergson's philosophy and its legacy, this volume appears on the Malaspina Great Books Core Reading List.
