Philosophy and Fringes 2

"... the fringe of vague intuition that surrounds our distinct - that is intellectual - representation. For what can this useless fringe be, if not that part of the evolving principle which has not shrunk to the peculiar form of our organisation, but has settled around it unmasked for, unwanted? It is there, accordingly, that we must look for hints to expand the intellectual form of our thought."

Bergson, Henri (1992), The Creative Mind: An Introduction to Metaphysics, A Citadel Press Book published by Carol Publishing Group, New York, p.49
