Sartre y Foucault: A propÓsito del humanismo

Translated title of the contribution: Sartre and Foucault: Concerning humanism

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This article analyzes the discussion between Jean-Paul Sartre’s humanism and Michel Foucault’s antihumanism. Foucault critiqued Sartre for building his philosophy from the concept of man. Sartre reproached Foucault’s lack of originality and his carelessness with history. The article tries to show the bias that feeds Foucault’s and Sartre’s positions. While Foucault hastily reads Sartre’s humanism, placing it in the modern episteme, Sartre orients his dismissive theoretical remarks through his political convictions.
