French Philosophy of the Sixties: An Essay on Antihumanism

Front Cover
University of Massachusetts Press, 1990 - Philosophy - 233 pages
Since its publication in France in 1985, this critique of the main currents in contemporary French thought has prompted debate over the character of postmodern philosophy. Luc Ferry and Alain Renaut offer sociopolitical analysis of the May 1968 student uprising in France, explore the connection between the revolt and the rise of postmodern thought, and question whether student dissent was a genuine humanist reaction to conditions in France at that time.
