Howard on 1968

Dick Howard, a regular reader of French Politics, has published a piece on 1968 that may be of interest to many of you. Dick is a professor of philosophy at SUNY Stony Brook and was a participant-observer in the events he writes about.

Thanks for the heads up. Interesting text, but for me, its full value does not appear until the end of the last footnote:

"I should stress that the other lesson one could draw from the fleeting experience of 1968 is that it does not help to be contemptuous of reforms, and that it can be dangerous to gamble on a resistance that can descend into nihilism."
