Philosophy for busy people. Read a succinct account of the philosophy of Foucault in just one hour.
The French philosopher Michel Foucault set about his task rather like a historian. After painstaking research, he concluded that knowledge and power were intimately related throughout history. He illustrated this central idea of his philosophy through studies of madness, sexuality, and discipline and punishment, arguing that there is no such thing as absolute truth, only different truths about reality at particular moments – truths that fulfil the needs of power.
Here is a concise, expert account of Foucault’s life and philosophical ideas – entertainingly written and easy to understand. Also included are selections from Foucault’s work, suggested further reading, and chronologies that place Foucault in the context of the broader scheme of philosophy.

    A particular episteme is bound to give rise to a particular form of knowledge. Foucault called the latter a discourse, by which he meant the accumulation of concepts, practices, statements, and beliefs that were produced by a particular episteme.
    Marko P.har citeretsidste år
    The set of assumptions, prejudices, and mind-sets that structured and limited the thought of any particular age was referred to by Foucault as an episteme.

    When he talks of ‘archaeology’ he means the unearthing of the hidden structure of knowledge that pertains to a particular historical period.
