Cahiers pour l'Analyse
Cahiers pour l'Analyse was a journal published by a group of young philosophy graduates at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) in Paris in the 1960s. Ten issues of the journal appeared between 1966 and 1969. According to its official website the Cahiers were "guided by the examples of Georges Canguilhem, Jacques Lacan and Louis Althusser" (all instructors at the ENS during this period).
Edited by a small group of Althusser's students at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, the Cahiers pour l’Analyse appeared during what were – arguably – the most fertile and productive years in French philosophy during the whole of the twentieth century. As distinct from philosophies based on the interpretation of meaning or lived experience, the Cahiers sought to combine structuralism and psychoanalysis with logical or mathematical formalization, generating a field of theoretical reflection that continues to guide some of today's most significant and provocative philosophical work."
