A bit about Gaston Bachelard ...

Gaston Bachelard (June 27, 1884 October 16, 1962) was a French philosopher and poet who rose to some of the most prestigious positions in the French academy despite his humble origins. He mainly taught philosophy of science, inventing the concept of epistemological block and the epistemological break (the word itself is almost never used by Bachelard, but became famous with Althusser). He influenced many French philosophers, among whom Michel Foucault.
