    In this critique of the history of philosophical practice, Le Doeuff explores the functioning of imagery in philosophical texts: 'reflecting on strands of the imaginary operating in places where, in principle, they are supposed not to belong'. The book comprises a substantial preface and seven essays, including discussions of Thomas More's Utopia, the problem of time in Galileo, Descartes and his commentators, the philosophy of the voice, and Pierre Rousseau's Systeme physique et moral de la femme (1777). Translated by Colin Gordon.
