Georges Canguilhem's On the Normal and the Pathological PDF

From this, a paradox: this guy, whose paintings is austere, deliberately and punctiliously constrained to a specific area within the historical past of technology, which at least doesn't go for a unbelievable self-discipline, has by some means stumbled on him­ self found in discussions the place he himself took care by no means to determine.
