Chapter XXVIII. Bergson Henri Bergson was a leading French philosopher of the century. He was influenced by William James and Whitehead and significantly affected the French thought. Sorel, a passionate defender of syndicalism and author of the book entitled "Reflections on Violence," used to justify the irrationality bergsonianstva revolutionary workers' movement, which has no specific purpose. But then Sorel refused to syndicalism and became a royalist. Basically impact Bergson's philosophy was conservative, it is easy to be consistent with the movement, culminating in Vichy. But Bergson's irrationalism has attracted many of those who are not involved in politics, such as Bernard Shaw, whose play "Back to Methuselah" - is pure bergsonianstvo. It was a purely philosophical aspect, forgetting about politics, we will have to consider the doctrine of Bergson. I'm pretty full considering this doctrine, since it serves as a fine example of revolt against reason, which, beginning with Rousseau, gradually extended to larger and larger areas of spiritual activity and life of the world.
