Knowledge of life by Georges Canguilhem ( Book )
10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 373 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
As the work of thinkers such as Michel Foucault, Francois Jacob, Louis Althusser, and Pierre Bourdieu demonstrates, Georges Canguilhem exerted tremendous influence on the philosophy of science and French philosophy more generally. In Knowledge of Life, a book that spans twenty years of his essays and lectures, Canguilhem offers a series of epistemological histories that seek to establish and clarify the stakes, ambiguities, and emergence of philosophical and biological concepts that defined the rise of modern biology.How do transformations in biology and modern medicine shape conceptions of life? How do philosophical concepts feed into biological ideas and experimental practices, and how are they themselves transformed? How does knowledge 'undo the experience of life so as to help man remake what life has made without him, in him, or outside of him?' Knowledge of Life is Canguilhem's effort to explain how the movements of knowledge and life come to rest upon each other

Anatomy of the passions by François Delaporte ( Book )
5 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The study of facial expression and its musculature undertaken by Guillaume-Benjamin Duchenne de Boulogne in 1862, an attempt to secure biological meaning in the natural language of the emotions, resulted in the pioneering Méchanisme du physiognomie humaine. Duchenne, who used photography to document his experiments, inspired Charles Darwin's Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals (1872) and had a significant influence on artists (his teachings were incorporated into the curriculum of the École Normale Supérieur des Beaux Arts). Through Duchenne, François Delaporte provides a remarkable philosophical and historical examination of expressive physiology during the mid-nineteenth century and considers the science of emotion as a means of revealing inner life upon the surface of the face. The central concern of Anatomy of the Passions is how techniques of studying facial musculature became a point of contact between existing and novel understandings of the body's expressive anatomy. Delaporte shows that Duchenne entirely reordered the knowledge and limits of expressive physiology in science and art. The face became a site where the signs of inner life are silently revealed, not yet betrayed by speech, but brought forth by reflexive physiology or by technical manipulation

Experimente im Individuum : Kurt Goldstein und die Fragen des Organismus by Stefanos Geroulanos ( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
'During his escape from the Nazis, the neurologist Kurt Goldstein wrote a book in 1933-34, which brought together the findings of years of clinical research on brain injury, aphasia, tonic muscles and perceptual disturbances in a plant. The structure of the organism would become his masterpiece, a large-scale synthesis of his neurological, physiological and therapeutic approach. Goldstein developed in a concept of the individual, which goes far beyond the borders of normally with his name placed on the connection aphasia research and neurology and should lead to a comprehensive reassessment of the terms norm, health and healing in medicine and psychiatry. Experiments in the individual examined Goldstein's concept of organism, patient and self-reference to the close linkage of its activities as a physician, researcher and epistemologist. Beyond the holistic and vitalistic debates on Goldstein's work situate Stefanos Geroulanos and Todd Meyers Goldstein's epistemological criticism and therapeutic innovations within a context of changes in physiology that are driven by the violence of the First World War. Using recently rediscovered films research the authors focus on the experimental research, which is the structure of the organism based on the book, not least brings Goldstein therapeutic concerns expressed. Finally, they explore Goldstein's far-reaching philosophical influence, including in the work of Ernst Cassirer, Georges Canguilhem and Maurice Merleau-Ponty.' Publishers website
