  • WM1: Ho tirato in ballo questo libro in una discussione su Giap: wumingfoundation/giap/?p=1005Riporto qui quei rapidi appunti. Va tenuto conto che enfatizzo solo un aspetto specifico di quest'opera, a discapito di altri che sono altrettanto importanti.-----------Consiglio a tutti la lettura dell'ultimo libro di Paul Veyne (uno dei più importanti storici dell'antichità "classica"), che si intitola Foucault. Il pensiero e l'uomo (Garzanti, 2010). Veyne fu allievo di Foucault all'Ecole Normale, e [...]

  • This book is part memoir of the author's friendship with Foucault and part attempt to tell us what Foucault really meant. Veyne, a historian, reads Foucault as an empiricist and a sceptic, rather like himself, it would seem.
