Abstract

The term metaphilosophy was developed in the field of studies in the last decades of the past century; however, thanks to it, we could reconsider some theoretical options of contemporary philosophy overall. To do so, it is necessary to distance ourselves from the classical distinction between analytical and continental philosophy to examine some aspects of Gaston Bachelard’s reflection from a metaphilosophical perspective. Bachelard did not employ the prefix meta in relation to “philosophy” because of chronological reasons; however, he made an extensive use of the French prefix sur, defining his own reflection as surrationaliste. If we compare the meaning of the two prefixes, in both languages, we could re-define Bachelard’s thought as a sur-philosophie. Through this approach we aim to translate the meaning and the function of metaphilosophy within the framework of the French cultural context. Such a methodology, indeed, allows us to meta-philosophically expand and re-interpret his topology of the main currents of contemporary gnoseology.
