News and resources on French thinker Michel Foucault (1926-1984)

The new issue of Philosophical Inquiries (IX, 1-2021)  features a Focus section discussing Ian Hacking’s philosophy,  his arguments on the combination between history and philosophy of science, on experimental realism, on scientific stability and on the disunity of the sciences. The Focus section is edited by Matteo Vagelli and Marica Setaro. The issue also presents Gaston Bachelard’s introduction to his Le rationalisme appliqué translated into English for the first time.
