The Letter to Richard Kroner was written by Henri Bergson in the end of November 1910. It is translated into Ukrainian for the first time. In the letter, Bergson sheds a bright light on tiny and usually invisible but very important details of his doctrine about truth and concepts, in particular creating new concepts.

The evolutionary doctrine of Henri Bergson is largely associated with the notion of élan vital (vital impetus). However, according to Bergson, one of the main functions of philosophy must be creating concepts. The world is extremely diverse, and if philosophy seeks to embrace this diversity, it must create a relevant network of concepts. In the evolutionary part of Bergson’s philosophy this point is implemented distinctly. Nonetheless, current historical and philosophical studies do not reproduce this scale.
