Project:

Jan Patočka: “Aristoteles, jeho predchudci a dedicové” [Aristote, ses devanciers, ses successeurs] (Czech > French)

The project aims at providing the international community of Patočka scholars with the first, long-awaited translation of a major work on Aristotle’s concept of movement, published in Prague in 1964, which is of particular importance not only for the history of ideas, but also for the comprehension of Patocka’s own contribution to phenomenology through his original theory of the “three movements of human existence.”
