Synopsis

In this volume, some of the leading schoolars of Maine de Biran’s philosophy try to demonstrate in a renewed way what we could call Maine de Biran’s "out of datedness". This is what they understand by it: in Maine de Biran’s philosophy there are things about the human way of being that become known for the first time; some of those discoveries were not fully understood at in that moment, and so perhaps Biran's apparent outdatedness is, in fact, in the backlight of the way in which he came to nurture philosophical contemporaneity, the way of an original thought to repeatedly rehearse his return in times more favourable to the recognition of the reach and vigour of an original phyilosophy.
