Tom Eyers offers a huge corrective to straightforward histories of the interval, focussing at the ways that French epistemological writing of the Thirties and Nineteen Forties - specially that of Bachelard and Canguilhem - laid the floor for the emergence of structuralism within the Fifties and Sixties, therefore wondering the traditional historic narrative that posits structuralism as rising mainly in response to phenomenology and existentialism.
