Nineteenth century French philosopher Henri Bergson emphasized the importance of attention, learning, humour and joy for life. This short book, part of the Life Lessons series from The School of Life, takes Bergson’s work and highlights his ideas most relevant to solving ordinary everyday dilemmas. Michael Foley shows himself to be a highly informed and adept reader of Bergson’s writings and makes efficient and effective use of some of their key ideas in this short book, writes Keith Ansell-Pearson.
