Cahiers pour l’Analyse Available Online

The influencial French journal Cahiers pour l’Analyse has been made available online thanks to the AHRC and Centre for Research in Modern European Philosophy at Middlesex University.

As a joint project of the philosophy graduates at the Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris, the journal ran for ten issues between 1966 and 1969. You only have to look at the dates to know that these were some of the most influencial years in the history of French and modern European Philosophy. And this is certainly something equally reflected in the list of contributors from short time that the journal was operative. Jacques Derrida, Jacques-Alain Miller, Alain Badiou, Jacques Lacan, Louis Althusser and Michel Foucault all contributed texts in various forms.

The site is gradually adding to the original texts with summaries, synopses and at a later stage, hopefully, translations.
