Zitate Henri Bergson

„Von der vorübergleitenden Realität nehmen wir sozusagen Momentbilder auf ( … ), Wahrnehmung, intellektuelle Auffassung, Sprache, sie alle pflegen so zu verfahren.“

—  Henri Bergson

Schöpferische Entwicklung, Jena 1921; Zitat bei www.a.tu-berlin.de http://www.a.tu-berlin.de/student/florian/bergsn.htm, «Eine Philosophie der Bewegung»

„So ist mein Leib ein Gegenstand, bestimmt, andere Gegenstände zu bewegen, also ein Zentrum von Handlung; er ist nicht imstande eine Vorstellung zu erzeugen.“

—  Henri Bergson, buch Materie und Gedächtnis

„This explains the primary mission which he feels to be entrusted to him, that of an intensifier of religious faith.“

—  Henri Bergson, buch The Two Sources of Morality and Religion

Quelle: The Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932), Chapter III : Dynamic Religion
Kontext: Religion is to mysticism what popularization is to science. What the mystic finds waiting for him, then, is a humanity which has been prepared to listen to his message by other mystics invisible and present in the religion which is actually taught. Indeed his mysticism itself is imbued with this religion, for such was its starting point. His theology will generally conform to that of the theologians. His intelligence and his imagination will use the teachings of the theologians to express in words what he experiences, and in material images what he sees spiritually. And this he can do easily, since theology has tapped that very current whose source is the mystical. Thus his mysticism is served by religion, against the day when religion becomes enriched by his mysticism. This explains the primary mission which he feels to be entrusted to him, that of an intensifier of religious faith.

„Men do not sufficiently realise that their future is in their own hands.“

—  Henri Bergson, buch The Two Sources of Morality and Religion

Concluding sentences <!-- University of Notre Dame Press, 2002, p. 317 --> ; often just the last part of the last sentence is quoted, in the form: "The universe is a machine for making gods."
The Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932)
Kontext: Men do not sufficiently realise that their future is in their own hands. Theirs is the task of determining first of all whether they want to go on living or not. Theirs is the responsibility, then, for deciding if they want merely to live, or intend to make just the extra effort required for fulfilling, even on their refractory planet, the essential function of the universe, which is a machine for the making of gods (la fonction essentielle de l'universe, qui est une machine à faire des dieux).

„A philosopher worthy of the name has never said more than a single thing: and even then it is something he has tried to say, rather than actually said. And he has said only one thing because he has seen only one point: and at that it was not so much a vision as a contact…“

—  Henri Bergson, buch An Introduction to Metaphysics

Un philosophe digne de ce nom n'a jamais dit qu'une seule chose : encore a-t-il plutôt cherché à la dire qu'il ne l'a dite véritablement. Et il n'a dit qu'une seule chose parce qu'il n'a su qu'un seul point : encore fut-ce moins une vision qu'un contact...
"L’intuition philosophique (Philosophical Intuition)" http://obvil.paris-sorbonne.fr/corpus/critique/bergson_pensee/body-5 (10 April 1911); translated by Mabelle L. Andison in: Henri Bergson, The Creative Mind: An Introduction to Metaphysics, Courier Dover Publications, 2012, p. 91

„The eyes see only what the mind is prepared to comprehend.“
