Mind-energy: Lectures and Essays (1920) by Henri Bergson

In the spirit of Darwinian evolution, Henri Bergson, with this volume, makes the philosophical argument that morality and religion are the “natural” and necessary products of man’s evolution. With a look which extends back some 2,400 years to the ancient Greek philosophers, Bergson traces the evolution of man’s instinct, intelligence and intuition and shows how necessary their interactions were in the development of human societies, morality and religion and he looks ahead to the shapes they must take if man is to survive himself.

Auroville: Sun-Word Rising by Savitra

Few today recall the actual story of Auroville’s pioneering emergence. Auroville: Sun-Word Rising provides an authentic narrative of that unique era now at risk of being lost in time. Originally published by the Community of Auroville in 1980, the book is based on extensive notes, documents and first-hand experience. It tracks the AV timeline when the Mother was physically present as well as the unforeseen challenges that followed Her passing, testing the courage and commitment of AV’s pioneers. In this light, it provides important historical information for present-day AV residents, supporters and AVI representatives. For how can we understand or represent Auroville today if we do not know its roots and the realities that led to a Government intervention in 1980, a Supreme Court Case in 1982 and an Auroville Act of Parliament in 1988?
