Creative Evolution by Henri Bergson

"Creative Evolution" is a philosophical work that explores the concept of life and evolution from a metaphysical perspective. The author challenges the traditional mechanistic and teleological interpretations of evolution, proposing instead that life is characterized by a continuous creative process driven by an élan vital, or vital impetus. This force is responsible for the complexity and diversity of life forms and their adaptation through a spontaneous and unpredictable process. The book blends philosophy with scientific insights to argue that evolution is neither purely deterministic nor entirely random, but a creative and dynamic interplay of forces.
