Margins, a new philosophy series, is dedicated to exploring unconventional avenues of thought. In addition to stimulating the mind with unique takes on topics in philosophy, Margins also aims to please the eye with its similarly unconventional design. In terms of length, this series features monographs between long journal articles and short books. The books in this series do not aim to be stereotypically scholarly, and if the quality of the insights reaches the level of inspired scholarship, they do so by circuitous routes of imagination and inspiration. This series does aim, however, to publish books that will provide readers with pleasurable intellectual experiences and open readers up to new philosophical roads to travel.
The second book of Margins series is Roland Breeur’s „Lies – Imposture – Stupidity“. Roland Breeur (born 1966) is a Professor of Philosophy at KU Leuven, Belgium, who specializes in teaching modern and contemporary French philosophy. After writing his PhD on Marcel Proust and studying and publishing work on Bergson, Merleau-Ponty, and Sartre, Breeur shifted his investigative focus to the origins of French Modernity from Descartes to Malebranche. Today, his research is focused primarily on Spinoza’s Ethics and the trying to make more explicit and take seriously what Deleuze meant in classifying Spinoza as anti-Cartesian.
