Matter and Memory

Henri Bergson

text

1896

A book in which Bergson tries to separate the physical location and functions of the brain from the act and experience of memory which he feels is a spiritual process rather than a habitual or purely mechanical function. while this results in passages of abstruse and impenetrable prose the book is full of wonderful moments and real poetry.

Structure

The book is divided into chapters dealing in turn with the activity of the body, the brain's capacity for recall and storage of images, the persistence of memories and identity and finally how our sense of self derives from these "actions".
