Time versus History
Judith Revel is professor of contemporary philosophy at the Université Paris Nanterre and also teaches at the École Normale Supérieure. A specialist in contemporary French thought, and in particular of Michel Foucault, her work deals with philosophy after 1945 and with how, at the crossroads of political reflection, historiography, and aesthetics, a certain practice of philosophy has sought to problematize both its own historical situation and the possibility of intervening in the present. She is academic co-director of two collective research projects: ‘Discipliner l’archive?’ (2016-2018, LABEX ‘Les passés dans le present’) and ‘Genre des archives et archives du genre’ (2016-2018, COMUE Université Paris Lumière). She has recently published Michel Foucault: Une pensée du discontinu (2010), Foucault avec Merleau-Ponty: Ontologie politique, présentisme et histoire (2015), and co-authored the Dictionnaire politique à l’usage des gouvernés (2012).
