Translated title of the contribution: The normativity of Life: Clinique and Health in Canguilhem's Le normal et le pathologique

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

This article, supported with a translation of a key passage, introduces Georges Canguilhem’s Essai sur quelques problèmes concernant le normal et le pathologique to Finnish readers. It consists of an introduction to Canguilhem's background, a presentation of Essai's main argument and technical remarks on translation. Essai continues to be a thought-provoking text in the history and philosophy of science, in the tradition marked by Bachelard and Cavaillès. Influenced by Alain, Goldstein, and more implicitly Nietszche, Canguilhem defines health not as normality but normativity, i.e. the capacity to institute new vital norms.
