Roudinesco knew many of these intellectuals personally and she weaves an account of their thought through lived experience and reminiscences Canguilhem for example was a distinguished philosopher of science who had a great influence on Foucault s exploration of sanity and madness themes Althusser lived in a notorious personal drama And in dramatizing the life of Freud for the screen Sartre fundamentally altered his own philosophical approach to psychoanalysis .
Roudinesco launches a passionate defense of Canguilhem Sartre Foucault Althusser Deleuze and Derrida against the new philosophers of the late s and s who denounced the work and sometimes the private lives of this great generation Roudinesco refutes attempts to tar them as well as the Marxist and left wing tradition in general with the brush of Soviet style communism In Freudian theory and the philosophy of radical commitment she sees a bulwark against the kind of manipulative pill prescribing and normalizing psychology that aims to turn individuals into mindless consumers Intense clever and persuasive i Philosophy in Turbulent Times i captivates with the dynamism of French thought in the twentieth century
