La métaphysique de l'amour chez Bergson : l'élan d'amour, de l'origine de la vie à l'humanité divine

Abstract : The metaphysics of love in Bergson’s philosophy is revealed in the book The Two Sources of Morality and Religion. The author proposes an evolutionist theory of love, in parallel with that of the life. This theory which traces the process of the impulse of love from the origins of life to the advent of divine humanity, that is to say the universal brotherhood that embraces the whole of humanity. This belief allows Bergson to develop a love-based morality in response to the tragic situation of Europe. 'between two wars. In his project, he confronts the epistemological problem to access the creative principle of life, the source of the love. To circumvent the difficulty, he resorts to mysticism. The conciliation between these two domains generates other problems. The originality of his thought lies in the fact that he came out of idealism to build a philosophical thought on the concrete of human existence. Indeed, the unfortunate and upsetting sociopolitical events of the twentieth century, which led the whole of mankind to disgrace, have not failed to influence the author's thinking.
