An intrepid professor from Bloomington discovers the Square Michel Foucault in Paris.
This is from Differences and Repetitions, a blog by Prof. Ted Striphas.
I wonder if there is a square Lyotard, Baudrillard or Derrida? de Beauvoir?
Last year, when I traveled to Italy, I made a point of swinging by Rome’s Protestant Cemetery, where the Marxist activist and political theorist Antonio Gramsci is interred. In the same spirit I tried tracking down the burial sites of some of my favorite French philosophers before heading to Paris. Unfortunately, I didn’t get very far. Foucault apparently is buried somewhere in northern France, Derrida in a Parisian suburb. Guattari may be interred at La Borde clinic, and who knows where Deleuze is?
