Mr. Dumain, would you please clarify why you regard Althusserian anti-humanism
as a kind of epater les bourgeois?
Thank you in advance,

The whole debate seems peculiarly French to me.
In France since the 19th century
thank you very much for this illuminating background knowledge.

Thanks for your response.
Yes, I kinda thought the idea might be that much humanism is philosophical
idealism ( in Engels famous sense in _Ludwig Feuerbach: The End of Classical
German philsophy_, two great camps of philosophy,idealism and materialism,
especially modern philosophy, on
Althusserian and French anti-humanism in general
is bullshit, the French intellectual's way of, as
they say, epater les bourgeois. If humanism
alludes to something else, then that should be
decoded. And I think Tedman is quite mistaken.
