Diagne concludes with the the Bergsonism that Senghor and Iqbal each shaped for the purposes of their respective thought. Senghor’s Bergson was the Bergson of vital understanding who emphasized that “the intellect is characterized by a natural inability to comprehend life.” As for Muhammad Iqbal’s Bergsonism, Diage goes back to the word “affinity” to describe Iqbal’s relationship to Bergson’s philosophy. Rather than “applying” Bergson’s concepts, Iqbal truly thought withhim.

Keywords:   affinity, creative evolution, reconstruction of religious thought in Islam, two sources of morality and religion, vital force
