Mind, Time and Evolution: A Celebration of Henri Bergson (1859-1941)

To mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of Henri Bergson - the French philosopher and recipient of the Nobel Prize for Literature


Henri Bergson made significant contributions to evolutionary theory with his idea of Creative Evolution and to philosophy of mind with his notion of the brain as the organ of attention to life, which channelled rather than generated consciousness - matter and memory. He saw the brain as both instrument of focused consciousness and an impediment to wider consciousness. This evening dialogue will discuss his ideas and their importance for our time.
