Henri Bergson inquires into the nature of moral obligation, into the place of religion and the purpose it has served since primitive times, into static religion and its value in preserving man from the dangers of his own intelligence; into dynamic religion or mysticism as a means of producing man's forward leap beyond the limits of the closed society for which nature intended him and into the open society which is the brotherhood of man.

Henri Bergson

Between the closed soul and the open soul there is the soul in process of opening. Between the immobility of a man seated and the motion of the same man running there is the act of getting up, the attitude he assumes when he rises. In a word, between the static and the dynamic there is to be observed, in morality too, a transition stage. This intermediate state would pass unnoticed if, when at rest, we could develop the necessary impetus to spring straight into action. But it attracts our attention when we stop short—the usual sign of insufficient impetus. Let us put the same thing in a different way.

Intellectual is set over against intuitive knowledge; scientific against philosophic knowledge. Scientific knowledge is conceptual, intellectual and reaches only a static image of reality. Philosophic knowledge, on the other hand, is intuitive, based on feeling and reaches the true dynamic reality. One is from the outside while the other is from the inside; one grasps only what is dead while the other grasps what is living; one materializes and mechanizes that with which it deals while the other is spiritual and finds freedom.

He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his rich and vitalizing ideas and the brilliant skill with which they have been presented". Bergson's great popularity created a controversy in France where his views were seen as opposing the secular and scientific attitude adopted by the Republic's officials. Bergson lived the quiet life of a French professor, marked by the publication of his four principal works:. The public attended his open courses in large numbers. His great-grandmother, Temerl Bergson , was a well-known patroness and benefactor of Polish Jewry, especially those associated with the Hasidic movement.
