Abstract :
Lorand writes 'Henri Bergson did not present a systematic theory of art, nor did he dedicate a whole, separate discussion to art. Yet Bergson's conception of art not only plays an important role in his own philosophy, but also contributes significantly to the understanding of the paradoxical nature of art. This understanding is developed along with his criticism of Western philosophy and his theory of time, intuition, and order. Art, as Bergson conceives it, serves as a major paradigm for illustrating some central arguments on these issues; many of the examples that substantiate his arguemnts are taken from aesthetic experience'. ;
