Roy, E. L. (n.d.). A New Philosophy : Henri Bergson. Retrieved from

Excerpt: This little book is due to two articles published under the same title in the ?Revue des Deux Mondes, 1st and 15th February 1912. Their object was to present Mr Bergson?s philosophy to the public at large, giving as short a sketch as possible, and describing, without too minute details, the general trend of his movement. These articles I have here reprinted intact. But I have added, in the form of continuous notes, some additional explanations on points which did not come within the scope of investigation in the original sketch. I need hardly add that my work, though thus far complete, does not in any way claim to be a profound critical study. Indeed, such a study, dealing with a thinker who has not yet said his last word, would today be premature. I have simply aimed at writing an introduction which will make it easier to read and understand Mr Bergson?s works, and serve as a preliminary guide to those who desire initiation in the new philosophy.
