  3. Surprise: A Circular Dynamic of Multi-Directional Verbalization.Natalie Depraz - 2018 - Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 26 (1):21-37.
    To understand the dynamics of the verbalization of surprise, I will start with the philosophical theoretical place that is, in my opinion, the most remarkable in terms of the descriptive phenomenology of surprise, namely, its approach by Paul Ricœur in Freedom and Nature in terms of what he calls “emotion-surprise.” This theoretical position will lead me to retrace, in a second step, the archeology of what Ricoeur calls the “circular phenomenon” or the “circular process” of surprise, which includes body language (...)

  4. Logic of the Egotistical Sentence: A Reading of Descartes.Vincent Descombes - 2018 - Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 26 (1):1-20.
    This text is a translation of two extracts from Vincent Descombes' 2014 book Le parler de soi. The majority of the translation consists of the chapter that Descombes dedicates to discussing Descartes extensively. In this text, Descombes analyzes “egotistical sentences,” or I-statements, beginning with the infamous example from Descartes. From here, he develops a substantial meditation on the nature of the self and its inherent philosophical paradoxes. The “radical question” guiding Descombes is whether or not an egotistical sentence has or (...)

    Did Foucault Do Ethics? The "Ethical Turn," Neoliberalism, and the Problem of Truth.Patrick Gamez - 2018 - Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 26 (1):107-133.
    This paper argues against a common misunderstanding of Foucault's work. Even after the release of his lectures at the Collège de France, which ran throughout the 1970s until his death in 1984, he is still often taken to have made an "ethical" turn toward the end of his life. As opposed to his genealogies of power published in the 1970s, which are relentlessly suspicious of claims of individual agency, his final monographs focus on the ethical self-formation of free individuals. I (...)

    L’énigme du cap acéphale: Autour des parentés philosophiques entre égologie et hétérologie dans la lecture derridienne du Monsieur Teste de Valéry.Pietro Lembo - 2018 - Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 26 (1):64-83.
    Le but de cette contribution c'est d'analyser la lecture derridienne du Monsieur Teste de Valéry afin de montrer que, par cette figure énigmatique, Derrida a voulu proposer une déconstruction double : une déconstruction de l’égologie souveraine au moyen de l’hétérologie contre-souveraine et vice-versa.

  7. Putting the Ghost Into Language: Cartesian Echoes in Contemporary French Medical Humanism.Matthew R. McLennan - 2018 - Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 26 (1):38-63.
    This article offers a definition of medical humanism and identifies four key contemporary medical humanists in France. It then makes two claims about the historical provenance of their humanism. First, they define it in opposition to a process of iatric medicalization that they trace to certain conceptual errors made by Descartes. But second, they remain more Cartesian than they seem to realize because they accept Descartes's knotting together of humanity, ethics and language. By looking at Gori and Del Volgo, Roudinesco (...)

  8. The Curiosity at Work in Deconstruction.Perry Zurn - 2018 - Journal of French and Francophone Philosophy 26 (1):84-106.
    Beginning with Jacques Derrida’s Beast and the Sovereign, I identify two forms of curiosity: 1) scientific curiosity, which proceeds through objective dissection and 2) therapeutic curiosity, which proceeds through observational confinement. Through an analysis of Derrida’s treatment of both sorts of curiosity, I notice and develop a third, deconstructive form of curiosity. Through repeated turn to the work of Sarah Kofman, I characterize this third curiosity as, by turns, linguistic, animal, and critical. As linguistic, this curiosity is a penchant for (...)
