The New Philosophy of Henri Bergson. Edouard LeRoy. Translated from the French by Vincent Benson, M.A. Henry Holt and Company, New York.

To outline this book which is in itself a review of Bergson's works is almost superfluous. Yet the volume well deserves mention and our thanks are due to Mr. Benson for his translation of it into English. It forms a very compact review of the fuller works and overflows with the genuine spirit and vitality of Bergson's philosophy. Mr. LeRoy confesses a mind predisposed toward the new teaching, which enables him to understand fundamentally Bergson's teachings and moreover to apply the very method of the new philosophy to this examination of the system. This is particularly successful in revealing the surpassing efficacy of this method in actually reaching into reality and shows with a new clearness the various facts which this teaching has to present.

Two admirable chapters reveal in detail what are the method and teachings, by a chronological examination of Bergson's works carefully leading up to his fundamental attitude toward reality and the pure knowledge of it. He emphasizes Bergson's insistence on the interaction between the method of intuition by which we enter reality, remounting the stream of creative activity, and the turning back to the homogeneous plane of static forms in time and space which practical life has cut out of the ceaseless flux of reality. Our intuitive knowledge must be thus crystallized into practical activity, into language, but we must realize that these are but symbolic of the creative duration which is reality, into which in turn we are enabled to plunge afresh when we have saturated ourselves with all the data found in our external concepts of experience and intelligence.
