Overview

In his 1914 work "Dreams", Bergson explores the world of dreaming and in particular why we dream. In his theory, he claims that dreams are merely our minds trying to interpret light patterns behind closed eyelids, and offers explanations of how outside stimuli can effect the dreaming process and how to enter dream of dream-like states. Highly recommended for those with an interest in dreams and the science of dreaming.

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. Translated from the original French.
