    Beskrivelse

    The seminar marks the 70th anniversary of the publication of Canguilhem’s groundbreaking La connaisance de la vie. Among the participants will be Todd Meyers and Stephanos Geroulanos who were involved in translating and introducing Canguilhem's text recently published in English (Knowledge of life. Fordham University Press, 2008). Meyers and Geroulanos’ translation and edition of a collection of Canguilhem’s wrtings on medicine will appear in April this year (Writings on medicine- Forms of living (Fordham University Press)). Our workshop on Canguilhem will explore the work of a researcher who not only directly influenced such major intellectual figures as Michel Foucault, Jacques Derrida, and Louis Althusser, but had a profound impact on the philosophy of science as such.
