ANDRADE, Pedro Duarte de. Philosophy and the 1960s. Estud. hist. (Rio J.) [online]. 2012, vol.25, n.49, pp. 13-30. ISSN 0103-2186. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-21862012000100003.
This essay describes the interaction of philosophy with the 1960s, considering the intersections between the ideas produced at that time and that particular historic moment. The method combines historical interpretation and philosophical interpretation, highlighting authors such as Herbert Marcuse and Michel Foucault. It concludes that 1960s thinking also coined a new conception of what would be the very activity of interpreting, either facts or ideas.
