Book of the Week - The Creative Mind: An Introduction to Metaphysics, by Bergson

Last week I decided to start reading a book a week no matter what. Every Sunday I am gonna pick a book, divide the number of pages by seven and read the resulting number of pages every day. This is the minimum. Of course I will be reading a lot around that (newspapers, articles, novels, etc.). But every week I need to read one book that is actually relevant to my research about how a certain desire for eternity shapes artistic representation (more on it later...). So last week I read "The Varieties of Scientific Experience," by Carl Sagan. Have I mentioned that he is my all-time favorite human? The book isn't great, it's just a collection of his Gifford Lectures. But I was missing his love for science, so it was very refreshing to read it. This week my pick is Bergson's "The Creative Mind: An Introduction to Metaphysics," which I have actually read before, but it was a long long time ago. Anyone wanna join me?
