Matter and Memory is a translation from French of Henri Bergson's Matiere et Memoire first published in 1896. The work affirms the reality of spirit and reality of matter, and tries to determine the relation of the one to the other by the study of a definite example, that of memory. This translation was made from the fifth edition of 1908 and was proofread by the author. Bergson wrote an Introduction to the translation. Please see the attached Table of Contents.
