5 PREFACE Les Deux Sources de la Morale et de la Religion is not a book to leave one indifferent. Those who are persuaded by its argument or inspired by its message are prone to manifest the same enthusiasm as Georges Cattaui who praised it as one of the greatest and wisest books conceived by philosophers. Even those who take exception to the doctrine it expounds are impelled to acknowledge its significance. It was in his critique of Les Deux Sources that Jacques Maritain was moved to call the philosophy of Henri Bergson one of the most daring and profound of our time. When many years ago I opened Les Deux Sources for the first time, I turned out of curiosity to the last page and beheld these words, "l'univers... est une machine it faire des dieux." Bergson was an evolutionist, but surely this was no ordinary evolutionist speaking, I thought. What must be the moral philosophy of a man who would write these words? When much later I undertook the present study, it was this same question which concerned me. Bergson's approach to the subject of morality is far from the conventional approach. The individual who undertakes a study of his thought can therefore expect to find it highly complex and innovative. Starting out from the viewpoint of evolution and from an anti-rationalist bias, he followed a method at once intuitive and thoroughly empirical to invent an unusual and, in fact, revolutionary doctrine of the nature of morality. Utilizing information from the fields of biology, anthropology, sociology, psychology and a variety of other sources, including mysticism and psychical research, he created an extraordinary synthesis which has added vast new dimensions both to the theory of evolution and to moral philosophy.

CONCLUSION SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY INDEX

8 "... society therefore is not self-explanatory; so we must search below the social accretions, get down to Life, of which human societies, as indeed the human species altogether, are but manifestations. But this is not going far enough; we must delve deeper still if we want to understand, not only how society 'constrains' individuals, but again how the individual can set up as a judge and wrest from it a moral transformation. If society is self-sufficient, it is the supreme authority. But if it is only one of the aspects of life, we can easily conceive that life, which has had to set down the human species at a certain point of its evolution, imparts a new impetus to exceptional individuals who have immersed themselves anew in it, so that they can help society further along its way.
