    Description'The School of Life offers radical ways to help us raid the treasure trove of human knowledge' Independent on Sunday Henri Bergson was a French professor and philosopher. Born in Paris in 1859 to a Polish composer and Yorkshire woman of Irish descent, his revelatory ideas of life as ceaseless becoming and the importance of attention, learning, humour and joy brought him incredible fame and media celebrity. Here you will find insights from his greatest works. The Life Lessons series from The School of Life takes a great thinker and highlights those ideas most relevant to ordinary everyday dilemmas. These books emphasize ways in which wise voices from the past have urgently important and inspiring things to tell us. 'thoroughly welcoming and approachable ...Perhaps the finest, certainly the most exuberant, of the volumes is MIchael Foley's LIfe Lessons from Bergson ...If the six books in the Life Lessons series can teach even a few readers to pay passionate heed to the world - to notice things - they will have been un unquestionable success' John Banville, Prospect 'there is a good deal to be learned from these little primers' Observer
