Categorization of Jean-Francois Lyotard as "deconstructionist" strikes me as highly unusual. 18:30, 5 August 2007 (UTC)


I think that this article is unnecessary. The little that isn't contained in the French philosophy article should be sent there and the rest deleted. Le vin blanc 06:24, 20 October 2007 (UTC)

Agreed. There are also various assertions on this page which are crying out for citation-reqd flagging, which won't leave the page looking any prettier. This can be avoided by just merging up anything here which can improve the main article. I'm going to add a merger proposal. AllyD (talk) 15:11, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
This may be a bit belated but I agree too, I mean, there is no equivalent article for, say, 20th century German philosophy.Matthew Fennell (talk) 02:55, 18 May 2011 (UTC)

Key thinkers[edit]

The edit warring with the anonymous IP that removes Bracha L. Ettinger from all articles prompted the discussion on her importance, which is certainly a good thing.

I am not an expert on French philosophy, but is she really a "key thinker"?

Just food for thought - i don't actually have an opinion. --Amir E. Aharoni (talk) 07:38, 28 August 2008 (UTC) yes — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:25, 21 September 2011 (UTC)


How is Camus not part of an entry about 20th-century French philosophy? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2602:304:45FA:B350:217:F2FF:FE0C:CEBB (talk) 23:00, 4 February 2015 (UTC)


I'm curious to know why Simone Weil was omitted from this entry. Voltaire1 (talk) 19:09, 30 June 2012 (UTC)

I'm even more curious as to why Camus is not here. Hello????
