Sam Talcott’s Book on Canguilhem is now out

Don’t read the publisher’s blurb (“fills a gap in the market”–the worst reason to buy a book, which means it just fills a gap in your bookcase forever) but the blurbs from the referees. With Stuart Elden’s book also out , this is the summer when Canguilhem finally gets some overdue love in English. (He was a major influence on Foucault and Derrida, among others, but of course a force in his own right.)
