    The Idea of Will and Organic Evolution in Bergson’s Philosophy of Life.Wahida Khandker - 2013 - Continental Philosophy Review 46 (1):57-74.
    The idea of the élan vital is crucial for an understanding of Bergson’s metaphysical method, underpinning the way in which philosophy stands with other forms of creative activity as an endeavour of “self-overcoming,” the self or subject no longer being at the centre of thought, but understood rather as a product of the process of thinking.

The incorporation of serial time into process (thereby unifying the sciences with philosophy) is commonly held to be a key distinction between Whitehead and the more “dualistic” thought of Henri Bergson.

    Two Natures: Whitehead on Bergsonism, Dualism, and Becoming-Subject.Wahida Khandker - 2007 - Process Studies 36 (2):245-271.

The incorporation of serial time into process is commonly held to be a key distinction between Whitehead and the more “dualistic” thought of Henri Bergson.
