Recent Literature on Georges Canguilhem: a review essay by Stefanos Geroulanos

As mentioned in a recent post on the excellent H-Madness, the most recent issue of Gesnerus – the Swiss Journal of the History of Medicine and Sciences – includes the review essay “Beyond the Normal and the Pathological: Recent Literature on Georges Canguilhem” by Stefanos Geroulanos.

Geroulanos, it is worth mentioning, has also collaborated with Somatosphere contributor Todd Meyers on a number of translations of Canguilhem’s work (like the recently published translation Knowledge of Life) and on a related book series for Fordham University Press entitled “Forms of Living.”  The Gesnerus review should be of particular interest to English-language audiences as Geroulanos covers a number of recent French-language books on Canguilhem.  These include:
