Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"A candid, unbuttoned Foucault" praises rock music and admits how boring it was to write some of his books, says he hates France's social security system and glorifies Khomeini's fundamentalist revolution. "By gathering the late Foucault's scattered interviews and a few lectures, this omnibus helps render his dense thoughts more accessible," observed PW.

Review

. . . fills an important niche in presenting a significant number of Foucault's writings that otherwise would remain unavailable to an English-language audience. . . . this work demonstrates acute insights that illuminate the so-called `normal' world.
American Journal of Art Therapy

These writings evince Foucault at his most lucid. Kritzman's introduction is most helpful.

More About the Author

One of the leading intellectuals of the twentieth century and the most prominent thinker in post-war France, Foucault's work influenced disciplines as diverse as history, sociology, philosophy, sociology and literary criticism.

Michel Foucault (1926-1984) was a French historian and philosopher associated with the structuralist and poststructuralist movements. He is often considered the most influential social theorist of the second half of the twentieth century, not only in philosophy but in a wide range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Among his most notable books are Madness and Civilization, Discipline and Punish, and The History of Sexuality.

Format: Paperback
This is great for general reading on Foucault. It does a great job tying together a lot of the things Foucault tried to say in his books. If you're a policy debater trying to become a Foucault buff, get this book. The chapter on critique does an excellent job drawing the distinction between criticism and transformation. It's good stuff :)

Format: Paperback
Michel Foucault (1926-1984) was a French philosopher, historian of ideas, and social theorist and activist; he wrote many books, such as Madness and Civilization: A History of Insanity in the Age of Reason, The Birth of the Clinic, Discipline & Punish: The Birth of the Prison, The History of Sexuality, Vol. 1: An Introduction, The History of Sexuality, Vol. 2: The Use of Pleasure, The History of Sexuality, Vol. 3: The Care of the Self, etc. Openly gay [see the James Miller biography, The Passion of Michel Foucault], he died of AIDS---the first “public figure” in France to die of the virus.

The editor wrote in the Foreword, “The dialogic form of the interview enabled Foucault to engage intimately in a critical reflection on the crucial shifts in his philosophical, political, and cultural perspectives. No other European intellectual since Jean-Paul Sartre has been so committed to the interview as a cultural form.

I received my book a few weeks after my command which is fair if you consider I live in France. It is very interesting to search in the book what you need to with Amazon.
