Example text

The idea of a soul that is not wholly coincident with the body, like the notion of animist forces that may punish or favour humans’ activities by invisibly controlling aspects of the environment or the actions of others, requires a capacity for believing in the enduring reality of that which has no immediate or substantial material presence. Bergson suggests that fabulation, the capacity for inventing and believing in such entities, forces and ideas, must have co-evolved with intellect, possibly as a function of instinct.

There are hints at a wider socioethical dimension, for example in his observation that the intellect’s tendency to find causality everywhere ‘expresses the very mechanism of our industry’ in which the same parts are repeatedly combined in a repeated series of movements to build the same products (CE: 164). Yet on the whole his consideration of the intellect as situated within a society – among other intellects – extends only as far as a consideration of language as equally tailored towards analytic, immobile, materialist ways of knowing.

Such might be the title of this book in an alternative universe. 1 Fabulation: Counteracting Reality What’s to be gotten over is the false idea that an hallucination is a private matter. (Dick, E: 337) One of the central achievements of Bergson’s The Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932) is to provide a convincing argument for the fundamental evolutionary, social and psychological reasons for our ability and tendency to fictionalize. The activity or process of fictionalizing, considered within such functional contexts, is what Bergson terms fabulation.
