Kultur – Sprache – Einbildungskraft, Gaston Bachelard und die deutschsprachige Philosophie

Edited by Rodolphe Calin and Andreas Hetzel. AZBP 1, German, 2021, 200 p. ISBN 978-3-7728-2891-1, € 58 In a vivid exchange with both modern sciences and art, Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962) developed a philosophy, which primarily seeks the possibility of creating novelty. This volume’s contributions show that his philosophy of science as well as his theory of creative imagination have been influenced in various ways by German philosophy, in particular by early German Romanticism, psychoanalysis, Nietzsche’s critique of metaphysics, by philosophical anthropology, phenomenology, and philosophy of culture.
