Canguilhem

canguilhemIn April 2017 I received a contract to write a book on Georges Canguilhem for Polity’s Key Contemporary Thinkers series. This work is directly related to the research I am doing for a book entitled The Early Foucault, since Canguilhem was a key figure in Foucault’s intellectual formation, most obviously through his role as rapporteur for Foucault’s thesis on the history of madness. Unlike the Foucault work, I don’t anticipate making detailed notes on the research and writing process, but there are two posts which explain the genesis of the project and give some further detail below.
