Video of the Day #8/2012: Vincent Carraud

Dear Readers,

today I present a video-conference held in Chicago 2009 by Vincent Carraud (*1957) about Blaise Pascal and the Problem of the True and the False Image. Carraud is a disciple of Jean-Luc Marion. He has written an admirably deep discussion of the Pascals relation to philosophy in his work Pascal et la philosophie, Paris, PUF 1992,  a book about the problem of rationality entitled Causa sive ratio. La raison de la cause, de Suárez à Leibniz, Paris, PUF 2002. His more recent book is about the problem of the invention of  the capitalized "I" from Pascal to Heidegger entitled L'invention du moi, Paris, PUF 2010.
