Gaston Bachelard: A Philosophy of the Surreal

First Edition

Zbigniew J. Kotowicz

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • The first English-language analysis of this highly influential French philosopher's work on epistemology, poetic imagination and temporality
  • Restores Bachalard's place amongst Michel Foucault, Georges Canguilhem and Jean Cavaillès, with whom he shaped the 'French epistemological' school of philosophy of science.
  • Explores an old philosophical tradition that Bachelard's thought opens up - atomism - a doctrine that has been almost forgotten and is much misunderstood
