The Historical Poverty of Philosophy?

Bill Benzon,who turned out to be a very friendly and informative interlocutor, has posted his afterthought on the Galloway controversy in which Terence Blake offered his incisive but well-informed comments (see terenceblake.wordpress.com). Terence’s post started it all–drawing Bill and I and others into his commentaries.

In his afterthought, Bill posted a link of an article that offers a historical lens by which to look at the global background of French theory that has undoubtedly influenced much of recent Continental thought. Yet short of being comprehensive, the article somehow transcends, in fact, offers a more relevant context in which we can view more accurately the development of Continental theory. Check out the link below:

The article is by Bernard Dionysus Geoghegan (From Information Theory to French Theory). I wonder how it escaped the most vocal of theorists working in continental theory today.
