Henri-Louis Bergson (1859–1941) was a French-Jewish philosopher who was influential in the tradition of continental philosophy, especially during the first half of the 20th century until WW2. Bergson is known for his arguments that processes of immediate experience and intuition are more significant than abstract rationalism and science, for understanding reality.
