An Introduction to Metaphysics is an essay by Henri Bergson and was published in 1903. In this essay, Bergson researches and explores the notion of what we perceive as reality. There have been many theories on what reality actually is. Is it what we perceive through our physical senses? Is reality defined by what we see? If that is the case, why do we believe in the air when we cannot see it? Henri Bergson looks at this question from varying perspectives in order to, at the very least, give as a slight understanding of this monumental question.
Henri Bergson argues that reality is more akin to the description of Greek philosopher Heraclitus. Heraclitus believes that reality can only be described as something fluid and is impossible to describe using reductionist analysis. Bergson states that reductionist analysis implies that we rotate around an object and each rotation relatively develops our knowledge and our perception of reality. Instead, Bergson believes that reality can truly be understood via intuition and that instead of revolving around a center, we are going within the center which then creates the reality around us. This audiobook is an introduction to this theory that is written in a manner that can assist inexperienced or beginners to grasp this complicated study.
