Gaston Bachelard was a French philosopher who rose to some of the most prestigious positions in the French academy. His most important work is on poetics and the philosophy of science. In philosophy of science he introduced the concepts of epistemological obstacle and epistemological break (obstacle épistémologique et rupture épistémologique). He influenced many French philosophers in the latter part of the twentieth century, among them Michel Foucault and Louis Althusser.
