Editorial Reviews

Review

"A rare opportunity to see how a great and original mind produces its work as well as itself at the same time. . . . Leaves no reader untouched or unchanged." —Edward Said, The New York Times Book Review

"Ignore those who dismiss [Foucault] without having bothered to read him: You must change your life." —Talk

Michel Foucault (1926–1984) was one of the most influential philosophers of the twentieth century. He held a chair in the history of systems of thought at the Collège de France and lectured at universities throughout the world. The New Press has published his books Aesthetics, Method, and Epistemology; Ethics; Power; The Essential Foucault; and The Chomsky-Foucault Debate (with Noam Chomsky). Foucault’s other books include Madness and Civilization, Discipline and Punish, The Order of Things, and The History of Sexuality.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I suppose this work wins big for the simple volume of material presented. The large collection of essays, lectures and interviews really digs into every little corner of Foucault's thought on power, including its slow development toward ethics. The collection also contains more than a hundred pages on Foucault's political activities. Again, the introduction is lengthy, thorough and very great at summarizing a complex system of thought.

Read the first essay (actually a lecture given in Brazil) "Truth and Juridical Forms" and compare his thesis with the developing NSA omnipresent "surveillance". The snickering anglo-phile philosophers that so belittled Foucault must be shaken up a bit.
