An Analysis of the Problem of Free Will in Henri Bergson’s Philosophy

Authors : Goodarz Shateri and Asghar Salimi Nave

Abstract: Free will or freedom is one of the important aspects of Bergson’s thought. He skilfully links it with duration. Through, the analysis of duration (true time) and its difference with mathematical time, he opens up a serious and at the same time, new understanding of free will which is completely different from those of the determinist’s and voluntarist’s. The way Bergson related duration to free will and basically the nature of his relevant understanding is the most critical problem that this study using descriptive and analytical method, tries to discuss.
