First published in 1938, this ubiquitously taught French-text translation expounds on the theory of knowledge and its development—a key element of Gaston Bachelard's notion of "the epistemological obstacle"—and the unavoidable presence in the thinking individual's mind of preconceived and misleading ideas derived from the very nature of language and culture.
