A Fordham University Press Publication

Forms of Living (FUP)

  • A classic in medical epistemology, a powerful case study showing how one's categories of understanding can determine what one is even capable of thinking about a disease--and how, within a few years, that can be overturned.
  • Delaporte is very well known in France; he is one of the most accomplished scholars following in the wake of Georges Canguilhem's work on the conditions of scientific knowledge.
