About the Author
GASTON BACHELARD is acclaimed as one of the most significant modern thinkers of France. From 1929 to 1962 he wrote twenty-three books concerned with the philosophy of science and the analysis of the imagination of matter. He received the Grand Prix National Lettres in 1961--one of only three philosophers ever to have achieved this honor. The influence of his thought can be felt in all disciplines of the humanities--art, architecture, literature, poetics, psychology, philosophy, and language.
