Overview

"Creative Evolution" is a 1907 book by French philosopher Henri Bergson. Within it, Bergson offers a version of orthogenesis to replace Darwin's evolutionary mechanism, which surmises that evolution is stimulated by a "vital impetus". "Creative Evolution" was hugely popular in the early twentieth century and is highly recommended for those with an interest in evolution and allied subjects. Henri-Louis Bergson (1859-1941) was a French-Jewish philosopher. He had a significant influence on the tradition of continental philosophy during the first half of the twentieth century until World War II, and is famous for his idea that immediate experience and intuition are more important than abstract rationalism and science for understanding the nature of reality. This classic work is being republished now in a new edition complete with a chapter From "Bergson And His Philosophy" by J. Alexander Gunn.
