Normal: Georges Canguilhem on the Medical and the Individual

Please join us for the opening research seminar of this year's series hosted by the Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy (CRMEP), which will be followed by a reception to welcome new students to CRMEP.

The boundary between what is considered normal and what is considered pathological is not stable, and in some cases is highly controversial. Is there a right way of drawing this distinction? And who should decide whether a state is normal or pathological? The philosopher Georges Canguilhem (1904-1995) provided original answers to these questions, which can still play an important role in current debates. At the same time, this talk will indicate some of their limitations.
