Henri-Louis Bergson è stato un filosofo francese.

La sua opera superò le tradizioni ottocentesche dello Spiritualismo e del Positivismo ed ebbe una forte influenza nei campi della psicologia, della biologia, dell'arte, della letteratura e della teologia. Fu insignito del Premio Nobel per la letteratura nel 1927 sia «per le sue ricche e feconde idee» sia «per la brillante abilità con cui ha saputo presentarle».

„This explains the primary mission which he feels to be entrusted to him, that of an intensifier of religious faith.“

—  Henri Bergson, libro The Two Sources of Morality and Religion

Chapter III : Dynamic Religion
The Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932)
Contesto: Religion is to mysticism what popularization is to science. What the mystic finds waiting for him, then, is a humanity which has been prepared to listen to his message by other mystics invisible and present in the religion which is actually taught. Indeed his mysticism itself is imbued with this religion, for such was its starting point. His theology will generally conform to that of the theologians. His intelligence and his imagination will use the teachings of the theologians to express in words what he experiences, and in material images what he sees spiritually. And this he can do easily, since theology has tapped that very current whose source is the mystical. Thus his mysticism is served by religion, against the day when religion becomes enriched by his mysticism. This explains the primary mission which he feels to be entrusted to him, that of an intensifier of religious faith.

„Men do not sufficiently realise that their future is in their own hands.“

—  Henri Bergson, libro The Two Sources of Morality and Religion

Concluding sentences <!-- University of Notre Dame Press, 2002, p. 317 --> ; often just the last part of the last sentence is quoted, in the form: "The universe is a machine for making gods."
The Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932)
Contesto: Men do not sufficiently realise that their future is in their own hands. Theirs is the task of determining first of all whether they want to go on living or not. Theirs is the responsibility, then, for deciding if they want merely to live, or intend to make just the extra effort required for fulfilling, even on their refractory planet, the essential function of the universe, which is a machine for the making of gods (la fonction essentielle de l'universe, qui est une machine à faire des dieux).
